Famous quotes containing the words victory and/or chimes:

    [holds her by the hand, silent] O mother, mother!
    What have you done? Behold, the heavens do ope,
    The gods look down, and this unnatural scene
    They laugh at. O my mother, mother! O!
    You have won a happy victory to Rome;
    But, for your son, believe it—O, believe it—
    Most dangerously you have with him prevailed,
    If not most mortal to him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It was your severed image that grew sweeter,
    That floated, wing-stiff, focused in the sun
    Along uncertainty and gales of shame
    Blown out before I slept. Now you are one
    I dare not think alive: only a name
    That chimes occasionally, as a belief
    Long since embedded in the static past.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
