Famous quotes containing the word dish:

    This stable is a Prince’s court.
    This crib His chair of state;
    The beasts are parcel of His pomp,
    The wooden dish His plate.
    Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)

    My prime of youth is but a frost of cares,
    My feast of joy is but a dish of pain,
    My crop of corn is but a field of tares,
    And all my good is but vain hope of gain:
    The day is past, and yet I saw no sun,
    And now I live, and now my life is done.
    Chidiock Tichborne (1558–1586)

    Is it enough
    That the dish of milk is set out at night,
    That we think of him sometimes,
    Sometimes and always, with mixed feelings?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
