Famous quotes containing the word throw:

    Underneath this sable hearse
    Lies the subject of all verse:
    Sidney’s sister, Pembroke’s mother;
    Death ere thou has slain another,
    Fair, and learned, and good as she,
    Time shall throw a dart at thee.
    William Browne (1591–1643)

    Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one’s soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds love and brotherhood.
    Josephine Baker (1906–1975)

    I throw myself down in my chamber, and I call in, and invite God, and his Angels thither, and when they are there, I neglect God and his Angels, for the noise of a fly, for the rattling of a coach, for the whining of a door.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
