Famous quotes containing the word raven:

    I do not think that what is called Love at first sight is so great an absurdity as it is sometimes imagined to be. We generally make up our minds beforehand to the sort of person we should like, grave or gay, black, brown, or fair; with golden tresses or raven locks;—and when we meet with a complete example of the qualities we admire, the bargain is soon struck.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    Thriftless ambition, that will raven up
    Thine own life’s means!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Not Hermia but Helena I love.
    Who will not change a raven for a dove?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
