Went over Snowdon Mountain,
From Anglesey to Swansea Bay
It sang like any fountain.“

„Like the dew on the mountain,
Like the foam on the river,
Like the bubble on the fountain,
Thou art gone, and forever!“

—  Walter Scott Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet 1771 - 1832

Canto III, stanza 16 (Coronach, stanza 3).

„Over the mountains,
And over the waves,
Over the fountains,
And under the graves;
Over the floods that are deepest,
Which do Neptune obey;
Over the rocks that are steepest,
Love will find out the way.“

—  Thomas Percy (Bishop of Dromore)

"Love Will Find Out the Way"; in its published form this is suspected to have been extensively written by Percy himself; it was later used by Pierre de Beaumarchais in Act III of The Marriage of Figaro (1778).

hidden
