Famous quotes containing the word crown:

    Or shatter too with him my curious frame:
    And let these wither, so that he may die,
    Though set with Skill and chosen out with Care.
    That they, while Thou on both their Spoils dost tread,
    May crown thy Feet, that could not crown thy Head.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    I’ve been in one Derby, and this is my third Belmont. But I’ve never thought of the fact that I haven’t won a Triple Crown race. I’m not like that. I always look at the sunshine of things.
    Julie Krone (b. 1963)

    To be a king and wear a crown is more glorious to them that see it than it is pleasure to them that bear it.
