For there no yew nor cypress spread their gloom But roses blossom'd by each rustic tomb.
The bow was made in England, Of true wood, of yew wood, The wood of English bows.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Happy happy time, when the white star hovers Low over dim fields fresh with blooming dew, Near the face of dawn, that draws athwart the darkness, Threading it with colour, like yewberries the yew.George Meredith
Strew on her roses, roses, And never a spray of yew. In quiet she reposes: Ah! would that I did too.Matthew Arnold
What gentle ghost, besprent with April dew, Hails me so solemnly to yonder yew?Ben Jonson
My mission is clear: to ensure that Singapore thrives and grows after Mr. Lee Kuan yew; to find a new group of men and women to help me carry on where he and his colleagues left off; and to build a nation of character and grace where people can live lives of dignity and fulfillment, and care for one another.
Over the years I have had the most contact with Lee Kuan yew, most recently in 2006, and have always found him impressive, even though we do not always see eye to eye. I met him first when he was George Shultz's guest at the famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective) Bohemian Grove, a male only bonding retreat among the redwoods of California.Alan Greenspan
