Famous quotes containing the words issue and/or marriage:

    For Banquo’s issue have I filed my mind;
    For them the gracious Duncan have I murdered;
    Put rancors in the vessel of my peace
    Only for them; and mine eternal jewel
    Given to the common enemy of man,
    To make them kings, the seeds of Banquo kings!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Thrift, thrift, Horatio, the funeral baked meats
    Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
