Famous quotes containing the words king and/or pale:

    I am as unfit for any practical purpose—I mean for the furtherance of the world’s ends—as gossamer for ship-timber; and I, who am going to be a pencil-maker to-morrow, can sympathize with God Apollo, who served King Admetus for a while on earth.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ah, Sun-flower, weary of time,
    Who countest the steps of the Sun,
    Seeking after that sweet golden clime
    Where the traveller’s journey is done:
    Where the Youth pined away with desire,
    And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow
    Arise from their graves, and aspire
    Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
