Famous quotes containing the word drop:

    Pleads he in earnest? Look upon his face.
    His eyes do drop no tears, his prayers are in jest.
    His words come from his mouth; ours from our breast.
    He prays but faintly, and would be denied;
    We pray with heart and soul, and all beside.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There is regret. Always, there is regret.
    But it is better that our lives unloose,
    As two tall ships, wind-mastered, wet with light,
    Break from an estuary with their courses set,
    And waving part, and waving drop from sight.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
