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.
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...
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 men have no respect for law, authority or human life.Marcus Garvey
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
Theyare sped; And when they list, their lean and flashy songs 578 Grate on their scrannel Pipes of wretched straw, The Hungry sheep look up, and are not fed, But swollen with wind, and the rank mist they draw, Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread, Besides what the grim wolf with privy paw Daily devours apace, and nothing said, But that two-handed engine at the door, Stands ready to smite once, and smite no more.john milton
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
Who ever hears of fat men heading a riot, or herding together in turbulent mobs? — No — no, ‘tis your lean, Hungry men who are continually worrying society, and setting the whole community by the ears.washington irving
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
As a boy I remember how terribly real the statues of the saints would seem at 7 o'clock Mass-before I'd had breakfast. From that I learned always to conduct Hungry.leopold stokowski
Poor Nations are Hungry, and rich Nations are proud, and Pride and Hunger will ever be at Variance.jonathan swift
"I like to know things. I'm Hungry for knowledge."lee child
Last night's fierce-eyed Don Giovanni, sung by Vytautas Juozapaitis, was a lean and Hungry predator (...) Mozart's dark comedy has been realised with grandeur.vytautas juozapaitis
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
One nightingale in an interfluous wood Satiate the Hungry dark with melody.Percy Bysshe Shelley
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.
There are people in the world so Hungry that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
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
It is not the well-fed long-haired man I fear, but the pale and the Hungry looking.
