Famous quotes containing the word slain:

    Cannibalism to a certain moderate extent is practised among several of the primitive tribes in the Pacific, but it is upon the bodies of slain enemies alone; and horrible and fearful as the custom is, immeasurably as it is to be abhorred and condemned, still I assert that those who indulge in it are in other respects humane and virtuous.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.
    Bible: New Testament 1 Samuel, 18:7.

    Said by the women of Israel after David killed Goliath; and overheard by Saul, who then determined to kill David.

    To a maiden true he’ll give his hand,
    Hey lillie, ho lillie lallie,
    To the king’s daughter o’ fair England,
    To a prize that was won by a slain brother’s brand,
    I’ the brave nights so early.
    Unknown. Earl Brand (l. 67–71)
