Famous quotes containing the word sank:
“The Sea Tiger was built to fight. She deserves a better epitaph than Commissioned 1940. Sank 1941. Engagements, none. Shots fired, none. Now you cant let her go that way. Thats like a beautiful woman dying an old maid.”
—Stanley Shapiro (19251990)
“For certainly he sank into his grave
His senses and his heart unsatisfied,
And madebeing poor, ailing and ignorant,
Shut out from all the luxury of the world,
The coarse-bred son of a livery-stable keeper
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
