Famous quotes containing the word grey:

    Let the erring sisters depart in peace; the idea of getting up a civil war to compel the weaker States to remain in the Union appears to us horrible to the last degree.
    —Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)

    On the grey rock of Cashel I suddenly saw
    A Sphinx with woman breast and lion paw,
    A Buddha, hand at rest,
    Hand lifted up that blest;
    And right between these two a girl at play
    That, it may be, had danced her life away....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A face peered. All the grey night
    In chaos of vacancy shone;
    Naught but vast sorrow was there—
    The sweet cheat gone.
    Walter De La Mare (1873–1956)
