Famous quotes containing the words prize and/or peace:

    In the corrupted currents of this world
    Offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice,
    And oft ‘tis seen the wicked prize itself
    Buys out the law; but ‘tis not so above:
    There is no shuffling.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    They say in the grave there is peace, and peace and the grave are one and the same.
    Georg Büchner (1813–1837)
