Famous quotes containing the word crown:
“Or shatter too with him my curious frame:
And let these wither, so that he may die,
Though set with Skill and chosen out with Care.

May crown thy Feet, that could not crown thy Head.”
—Andrew Marvell (16211678)

—W. Somerset Maugham (18741966)
“From the crown of his head to the sole of his foot, he is all mirth.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
