Famous quotes containing the word slain:

    Though in the trade of war I have slain men,
    Yet do I hold it very stuff o’ the conscience
    To do no contrived murder. I lack iniquity
    Sometimes to do me service.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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.

    A master of men was the Goodly Fere,
    A mate of the wind and sea,
    If they think they ha’ slain our Goodly Fere
    They are fools eternally.

    I ha’ seen him eat o’ the honey-comb
    Sin’ they nailed him to the tree.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
