Famous quotes containing the words green and/or crawley:
“She never told her love,
But let concealment, like a worm i the bud
Feed on her damask cheek. She pined in thought,
And with a green and yellow melancholy
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief. Was not this love indeed?”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Peace, woman, Mr. Crawley said, addressing her at last. The bishop jumped out of his chair at hearing the wife of his bosom called a woman. But he jumped rather in admiration than in anger.”
—Anthony Trollope (18151882)
