Famous quotes containing the word shepherd:

    The metaphor of the king as the shepherd of his people goes back to ancient Egypt. Perhaps the use of this particular convention is due to the fact that, being stupid, affectionate, gregarious, and easily stampeded, the societies formed by sheep are most like human ones.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)

    When icicles hang by the wall,
    And Dick the shepherd blows his nail,
    And Tom bears logs into the hall,
    And milk comes frozen home in pail;
    When blood is nipped, and ways be foul,
    Then nightly sings the staring owl:
    Tu-whit, tu-whoo!—
    A merry note,
    While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
