Famous quotes containing the word thick:

    I know a little garden-close
    Set thick with lily and red rose,
    Where I would wander if I might
    From dewy dawn to dewy night,
    William Morris (1834–1896)

    Suddenly clouds of snow
    Begin assaulting the air,
    As falling, as tangled
    As a girl’s thick hair.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Come, thick night,
    And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
    That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
    Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark
    To cry, “Hold, hold!”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
