Famous quotes containing the words armour and/or body:

    The man whose silent days
    In harmless joys are spent,
    Whom hopes cannot delude,
    Nor sorrow discontent:

    That man needs neither towers
    Nor armour for defence,
    Nor secret vaults to fly
    From thunder’s violence.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    I—love’s skein upon the ground,
    My body in the tomb—
    Shall leap into the light lost
    In my mother’s womb.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
