Famous quotes containing the word edge:

    His poor, crazy, deformed body was a mere Pandora’s box, containing all the physical ills that ever afflicted humanity. This, perhaps, whetted the edge of his satire, and may in some degree excuse it.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The stroke of the whip maketh marks in the flesh: but the stroke of the tongue breaketh the bones. Many have fallen by the edge of the sword: but not so many as have fallen by the tongue.
    Ecclesiasticus Apocrypha. Ecclesiasticus, 28:17-8.

    So God stepped over to the edge of the world
    And He spat out the seven seas;
    He batted His eyes, and the lightnings flashed;
    He clapped His hands, and the thunders rolled;
    And the waters above the earth came down,
    The cooling waters came down.
    James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)
