Famous quotes containing the word lions:

    Danger knows full well
    That Caesar is more dangerous than he.
    We are two lions littered in one day,
    And I the elder and more terrible,
    And Caesar shall go forth.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I am afraid if there is anything to be afraid of. A precipice cannot hurt you. Lions and tigers can. The streets of New York I consider more dangerous than the Matterhorn to a thoroughly competent and careful climber.
    Annie Smith Peck (1850–1935)
