Famous quotes containing the word tempt:

    Adriana. With what persuasion did he tempt thy love?
    Luciana. With words that in an honest suit might move.
    First he did praise my beauty, then my speech.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Receive, dear friend, the truths I teach,
    So shalt thou live beyond the reach
    Of adverse Fortune’s pow’r;
    Not always tempt the distant deep,
    Nor always timorously creep
    Along the treach’rous shore.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8)

    yet chill and formal,
    how I ache
    to tempt a chisel
    as a sculptor.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
