Famous quotes containing the word round:
“In the land of turkeys in turkey weather
At the base of the statue, we go round and round.
What a beautiful history, beautiful surprise!
Monsieur is on horseback. The horse is covered with mice.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“All round and round does the world lie as in a sharp-shooters ambush, to pick off the beautiful illusions of youth, by the pitiless cracking rifles of the realities of age.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Violence upon the roads: violence of horses;
Some few have handsome riders, are garlanded
On delicate sensitive ear or tossing mane,
But wearied running round and round in their courses
All break and vanish, and evil gathers head:
Herodias daughters have returned again.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
