Famous quotes containing the word crown:
“It grazes the horizons, launched above
A fountain at salute, a crown in view”
—Hart Crane (18991932)
“a sorrows crown of sorrow is remembering happier things.
Drug thy memories, lest thou learn it, lest thy heart be put to proof,
In the dead unhappy night, and when the rain is on the roof.”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
“Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
The intertissued robe of gold and pearl,
Not all these, laid in bed majestical,
Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave
Who with a body filled and vacant mind
Gets him to rest, crammed with distressful bread.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
