Famous quotes containing the word herbert:

    The harbingers are come. See, see their mark:
    White is their color, and behold my head.
    But must they have my brain? Must they dispark
    Those sparkling notions, which therein were bred?
    Must dullness turn me to a clod?
    Yet have they left me, Thou art still my God.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)
