Famous quotes containing the word shed:

    Winters know
    Easily to shed the snow,
    And the untaught Spring is wise
    In cowslips and anemonies.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    For them it’s out-of-date and outmoded to perform miracles; teaching the people is too like hard work, interpreting the holy scriptures is for schoolmen and praying is a waste of time; to shed tears is weak and womanish, to be needy is degrading; to suffer defeat is a disgrace and hardly fitting for one who scarcely permits the greatest of kings to kiss the toes of his sacred feet; and finally, death is an unattractive prospect, and dying on a cross would be an ignominious end.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    Yet I’ll not shed her blood,
    Nor scar that whiter skin of hers than snow,
    And smooth as monumental alabaster.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
