Famous quotes containing the word shape:
“Thir dread commander: he above the rest
In shape and gesture proudly eminent
Stood like a Towr; his form had yet not lost
All her Original brightness, nor appeard
Less than Arch Angel ruind, and th excess
Of Glory obscurd: As when the Sun new risn
Looks through the Horizontal misty Air
Shorn of his Beams, or from behind the Moon
In dim Eclips disastrous twilight sheds
On half the Nations, and with fear of change
—John Milton (16081674)
“Youre a business idea in the shape of a man.”
—David Lean (19081991)

—E.T.A.W. (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Wilhelm)
