Famous quotes containing the word diamonds:

    The prosecution of [Warren] Hastings, though he should escape at last, must have good effect. It will alarm the servants of the Company in India, that they may not always plunder with impunity, but that there may be a retrospect; and it will show them that even bribes of diamonds to the Crown may not secure them from prosecution.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    I met a traveler from Arkansas
    Who boasted of his state as beautiful
    For diamonds and apples.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Shuffled between caring and disgrace
    I took up all our closet space.
    What luxury we first checked into,
    to growl like lawyers until I threw
    my diamonds and cash upon the floor.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
