Famous quotes containing the word phoenix:
“Devouring Time, blunt thou the lions paws,
And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tigers jaws,
And burn the long-livd phoenix in her blood;
Make glad and sorry seasons as thou fleetst,
And do whater thou wilt, swift-footed Time,
To the wide world and all her fading sweets;”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“A phoenix it is
This hearse that must bless
With aromatic gums
That cost great sums,
The way of thurification
To make a fumigation,
Sweet of reflare,
And redolent of air,”
—John Skelton (1460?1529)
“A victorious tomcat is like a tiger; a plucked phoenix is not worth a chicken.”
