Famous quotes containing the word slain:
“If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“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.
“No Ravens wing can stretch the flight so far
As the torn bandrols of Napoleons war.
Choose then your climate, fix your best abode,
Hell make you deserts and hell bring you blood.
How could you fear a dearth? have not mankind,
Tho slain by millions, millions left behind?
Has not conscription still the power to weild
Her annual faulchion oer the human field?
A faithful harvester!”
—Joel Barlow (17541812)
