Famous quotes containing the words circle and/or hue:

    Perchance we may,
    Where now this night is day,
    And even through faith of still averted feet,
    Making full circle of our banishment,
    Amazed meet;
    Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore (1823–1896)

    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscovered country from whose bourn
    No traveler returns, puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?

    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
