Famous quotes containing the word dumb:

    O let my books be then the eloquence
    And dumb presagers of my speaking breast.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    O, it offends me to the soul to hear a robustious, periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to tatters, to very rags, to split the ears of the groundlings, who for the most part are capable of nothing but inexplicable dumb shows and noise. I would have such a fellow whipped for o’erdoing Termagant. It out-Herods Herod. Pray you avoid it.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    And I am dumb to tell the lover’s tomb
    How at my sheet goes the same crooked worm.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
