Famous quotes containing the word crown:
“This crown to crown the laughing man, this rose-wreath crown: I myself have set this crown upon my head, I myself have pronounced my laughter holy.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
The intertissued robe of gold and pearl,
Not all these, laid in bed majestical,
Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave
Who with a body filled and vacant mind
Gets him to rest, crammed with distressful bread.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Ye distant spires, ye antique towers,
That crown the watry glade.”
—Thomas Gray (17161771)
