Famous quotes containing the word thousand:
“There was the murdered corpse, in covert laid,
And violent death in thousand shapes displayed;
The city to the soldiers rage resigned;
Successless wars, and poverty behind;
Ships burnt in fight, or forced on rocky shores,
And the rash hunter strangled by the boars;
The newborn babe by nurses overlaid;
And the cook caught within the raging fire he made.”
—Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?1400)
“The artist is of no importance. Only what he creates is important, since there is nothing new to be said. Shakespeare, Balzac, Homer have all written about the same things, and if they had lived one thousand or two thousand years longer, the publishers wouldnt have needed anyone since.”
—William Faulkner (18971962)
“Give me a thousand kisses, and then a hundred,
Then another thousand, then a second hundred,
And then yet another thousand, then a hundred.”
—Catullus [Gaius Valerius Catullus] (8454 B.C.)
