Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is no merit of yours: Nature did it.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    yet it seems
    Life scarce can cast a fragrance on the wind,
    Scarce spread a glory to the morning beams,
    But the torn petals strew the garden plot;
    And there’s but common greenness after that.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I cast my heart into my rhymes,
    That you, in the dim coming times,
    May know how my heart went with them
    After the red-rose-bordered hem.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
