Quotes: Famed in Story
Men of Harlech, on to glory
See your banner famed in story
Waves these buring words before ye,
"Britain scorns to yield!"
Men of Harlech

"Hail! generous youth, whom glory's sacred flame
Inspires, and animates to deeds of fame;"
George Gordon, Lord Byron

"Fame is the perfume of heroic deeds."

"Fame is a bee.
It has a song
It has a sting
Ah, too, it has a wing."

Montgomery! true, the common lot
Of mortals lies in Lethe's wave;
Yet some shall never be forgot,
Some shall exist beyond the grave.

"Unknown the region of his birth,"
The hero rolls the tide of war;
Yet not unknown his martial worth,
Which glares a meteor from afar.

His joy or grief, his weal or woe,
Perchance may 'scape the page of fame;
Yet nations, now unborn, will know
The record of his deathless name.
George Gordon, Lord Byron

"He lives in fame that died in virtue's cause."

Gandalf! If you had heard only a quarter of what I have heard about him, and I have heard very little of all there is to hear, you would be prepared for any sort of remarkable tale. Tales and adventures sprouted up all over the place wherever he went, in the most extraordinary fashion.
