Quotations[edit]

  • 1815 Sir Walter Scott: The Lord of the Isles:
    Behind them, screened in sheltering wood,
    The gallant Keith, Lord Marshal, stood:
    His men-at-arms bear mace and lance,
    And plumes that wave, and helms that glance.
  • 2005 Andrew L. Brown: Overcoming Adversity: Your Dreams Matter. ISBN 0976563908 page 35:
    My middle name, Keith, is music to my ears. It's like jazz on a cool summer night. My very closest family members call me Keith for short.
