Dweller in yon dungeon dark,Hangman of creation, mark!Who in widow weeds appears,Laden with unhonoured years,Noosing with care a bursting purse,Baited with many a deadly curse?
Fortune is like a widow won,And truckles to the bold alone.william somervile
For I am sick and capable of fears, Oppress'd with wrongs, and therefore full of fears, A widow, husbandless, subject to fears, A woman, naturally born to fears.william shakespeare
Far from being half a woman, a widow is the only complete example of her sex.Infact, thefinished article.John Russell
The others were only my wives.But you, mydear, will be my widow.
He that steals a cow from a poor widow, or a stirk from a cottar, is a thief; he that lifts a drove from a Sassenach laird, is a gentleman-drover. And, besides, to take a tree from the forest, a salmon from the river, a deer from the hill, or a cow from a Lowland strath, is what no Highlander need ever think shame upon.walter scott
