Famous quotes containing the word slew:

    Out of the woods my Master came,
    Content with death and shame.
    When Death and Shame would woo Him last,
    From under the trees they drew Him last:
    ‘Twas on a tree they slew Him—last
    When out of the woods He came.
    Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)

    As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his fortune; honor for his valor; and death for his ambition.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
