Famous quotes containing the word bid:
“And bid the devil take the hinmost.”
—Samuel Butler (16121680)
“At stroke of midnight soul cannot endure
A bodily or mental furniture.
What can she take until her Master give!
Where can she look until He make the show!
What can she know until He bid her know!
How can she live till in her blood He live!”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“O tigers heart wrapped in a womans hide!
How couldst thou drain the lifeblood of the child,
To bid the father wipe his eyes withal,
And yet be seen to bear a womans face?
Women are soft, mild, pitiful, and flexible;
Thou stern, obdurate, flinty, rough, remorseless.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
