Leads the passions, like the orb that guides,
From pole to pole, the palpitating tides.
            —Oliver Wendell Holmes
            Leads them like a thing
Made by some other deity than nature.
            —William Shakespeare
  Lead thee, as a staff directs the blind.
            —Jonathan Swift
  Lead as a mother.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
Led lovingly like hound in huntsman’s leash
Or child by finger.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
