Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Bells
 
Silence that dreadful bell,
It frights the Isle from her propriety.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act II. Scene 3. (The Moor, after the affray between Cassio and Montano.)
  1
That all-softening, overpowering knell,
The tocsin of the soul—the dinner bell.
        Byron.—Don Juan, Canto V. Stanza 49.
  2
There is in souls a sympathy with sounds;
How soft the music of those village bells,
Falling at intervals upon the ear
In cadence sweet, now dying all away.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book VI. Line 1.
  3
Those evening bells! those evening bells!
How many a tale their music tells,
Of youth, and home, and that sweet time,
When last I heard their soothing chime!
        Tom Moore.—Vol. IV. Page 157.
