Famous quotes containing the word fling:

    It will be difficult for me not to make sport for the Philistines by pulling down a house or two, since when I once take pen in hand, I must say what comes uppermost, or fling it away.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Come round me, little childer;
    There, don’t fling stones at me
    Because I mutter as I go;
    But pity Moll Magee.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    What if, both mad and blinded in their rage,
    Our foes should fling us down their mortal gage,
    And with a hostile step profane our sod!
    We shall not shrink, my brothers, but go forth
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)
