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)

    Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long- wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

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