Famous quotes containing the word linger:

    When she rises in the morning
    I linger to watch her;
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Mine be a cot beside the hill;
    A bee-hive’s hum shall soothe my ear;
    A willowy brook, that turns a mill,
    With many a fall shall linger near.
    Samuel Rogers (1763–1855)

    Its shrill scream seems yet to linger in its throat, and the roar of the sea in its wings. There is the tyranny of Jove in its claws, and his wrath in the erectile feathers of the head and neck. It reminds me of the Argonautic expedition, and would inspire the dullest to take flight over Parnassus.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
