Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird! No hungry generations tread thee down; The voice I hear this passing night was heard In ancient days by emperor and clown: Perhaps the self-same song that found a path Through the sad heart of Ruth, when, sick for home, She stood in tears amid the alien corn; The same that oft-times hath Charm’d magic casements, opening on the foam Of perilous seas, in faery lands forlorn.
The scholars who understand it hesitate to speak out boldly for fear people will not understand. The people, who understand it quite easily, also fear to speak out while they wait for the scholars to speak out first. The difference between our present situation and that of the story is that it is not the emperor but the people who are periodically made to go naked and Hungry and insecure and discontented - a ready prey to less timid organizers of discontent for the destruction of the civilization.abba lerner
Hungry gentry now pillage, maraud as they please, In the barn Baptist greatly beasts' numbers decreased 'Sprinkling' heads of two oxen, two calves and one goat, While Razor his sabre sank deep in each throat. Awl, with his rapier, also ran up to their aid Sticking old boars and piglets below shoulder blade. Now death threatens the poultry – the geese, alert flocks, Which once saved Rome from Gauls in the dark climbing rocks, Vainly cackle for succour; no Manlius will come...
On John Edwards, U.S. Senator from North Carolina: "The stump speech of pretty-boy Senator John Edwards, which I've heard often enough to be able to mouth along with him, has room for everything, including vivid, wrenching portraits of despair: 'Tonight somewhere in America a ten-year-old little girl will go to bed Hungry, hoping and praying that tomorrow will not be as cold as today because she doesn't have the coat to keep her warm.' You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be doubled up in laughter at that line.mark steyn
As I have said before, the ever more sophisticated weapons piling up in the arsenals of the wealthiest and the mightiest can kill the illiterate, the ill, the poor and the Hungry but they cannot kill ignorance, illnesses, poverty or hunger.fidel castro
The moment Colin sat down, Hollis asked Hassan, "Would you like to say grace?" "Sure thing." Hassan cleared his throat. "Bismallah." Then he picked up his fork. "That's it?" Hollis wondered. "That's it. We are a terse people. Terse, and also Hungry."john green
Polygamy and polyandry distribute the frightening physical solidarity of monogamy. Monogamous couples are always Hungry for company: to dilute sex.laura riding
Proves she like some portent of an iceberg Swimming full upon the ship it founders Hungry with huge teeth of splintered crystals?Robert Browning
The Hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang that jury-men may dine.Alexander Pope
How oft the word which we would gladly speakMight be, unto some darkly groping soul,The key to bid doubt's massive doors unroll,The free winds' breath upon the prisoner's cheek,Or. to the Hungry heart, sweet pity's dole!We hurry on, nor know that they are near,As passed Evangeline the one so dear.julia abigail fletcher carney
Now, blessings light on him that first invented this same sleep! It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the Hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot. It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even.Miguel de Cervantes
I think that I shall never seeA poem lovely as a tree.A tree whose Hungry mouth is prestAgainst the earth's sweet flowing breast;A tree that looks at God all day,And lifts her leafy arms to pray;A tree that may in Summer wearA nest of robins in her hair;Upon whose bosom snow has lain;Who intimately lives with rain.Poems are made by fools like me,But only God can make a tree.joyce kilmer
Poor Nations are Hungry, and rich Nations are proud, and Pride and Hunger will ever be at Variance.jonathan swift
I told him...that we ate when we were not Hungry, and drank without the provocation of thirst.jonathan swift
"I like to know things. I'm Hungry for knowledge."lee child
Dictators ride to and fro on tigers from which they dare not dismount. And the tigers are getting Hungry.winston churchill
I was broke, Hungry, jobless … yet despite the fact that all three of us are old-time aviators who did our part for the development of the industry, we were left out in the cold in the Administration’s program of job making. Can you blame us for accepting the lucrative Spanish offer?eddie august schneider
The street's alive as secret debts are paid, Contacts made, they vanished unseen. Kids flash guitars just like switch-blades Hustling for the record machine. The Hungry and the hunted explode into rock'n'roll bands That face off against each other out in the street, down in Jungleland.Bruce Springsteen
During the election, Prime Minister Harper ended some of his speeches with the words “God bless Canada.” Indeed, the prophet Isaiah says that God blesses you when you “share your bread with the Hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house” (Isaiah 58.7). We urge the Prime Minister to spend tax dollars now in a way that will bring the homeless poor into their own house, and allow them the dignity of sharing their bread with others.
When you live on Cold Mountain long enough the autumns pass quickly When you live alone you have no worries When you leave the doors open no one bothers you The bubbling stream runs forever In the cave a clay pot boils over a fire on the ground A wandering breeze stirs the fragrant pines When Hungry I eat one simple meal And lean against the rock in complete harmony
And nearer as they came, a genial savour Of certain stews, and roast-meats, and pilaus, Things which in Hungry mortals' eyes find favour.lord byron
Oh, better no doubt is a dinner of herbs, When season'd by love, which no rancour disturbs And sweeten'd by all that is sweetest in life Than turbot, bisque, ortolans, eaten in strife! But if, out of humour, and Hungry, alone A man should sit down to dinner, each one Of the dishes of which the cook chooses to spoil With a horrible mixture of garlic and oil, The chances are ten against one, I must own, He gets up as ill-tempered as when he sat down.Owen Meredith
Lord, give bread to the Hungry, and hunger for you to those who have bread.
The Hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang that jurymen may dine.Alexander Pope
