Famous quotes containing the word frisk:
“We were as twinned lambs that did frisk i the sun
And bleat the one at th other. What we changed
Was innocence for innocence; we knew not
The doctrine of ill-doing, nor dreamed
That any did. Had we pursued that life,
And our weak spirits neer been higher reared
With stronger blood, we should have answered heaven
Boldly Not guilty, the imposition cleared
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“O brilliant kids, frisk with your dog,
Fondle your shells and sticks, bleached
By time and the elements; but there is a line
You must not cross”
—Hart Crane (18991932)
