John Home
I'll woo her as the lion wooes his brides.
Home quotes
A rude and boisterous captain of the sea.
In the first days
Of my distracting grief, I found myself
As women wish to be who love their lords.

Home John quotes
My name is Norval; on the Grampian hills
My father feeds his flocks; a frugal swain,
Whose constant cares were to increase his store,
And keep his only son, myself, at home.
Home John
Like Douglas conquer, or like Douglas die.
