Famous quotes containing the word cease:

    O you singers solitary, singing by yourself, projecting me,
    O solitary me listening, never more shall I cease perpetuating you
    Never more shall I escape, never more the reverberations,
    Never more the cries of unsatisfied love be absent from me,
    Never again leave me to be the peaceful child I was before what

    By the sea under the yellow and sagging moon,
    The messenger there aroused, the fire, the sweet hell within,
    The unknown want, the destiny of me.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The tease and doubt of shelling,
