Famous quotes containing the word giant:

    The sense of death is most in apprehension,
    And the poor beetle that we tread upon
    In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
    As when a giant dies.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The giant was hairy, the giant was horrid,
    He had one eye in the middle of his forehead.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    In frames as large as rooms that face all ways
    And block the ends of streets with giant loaves,
    Screen graves with custard, cover slums with praise
    Of motor-oil and cuts of salmon, shine
    Perpetually these sharply-pictured groves
    Of how life should be.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
