Famous quotes containing the word web:

    If our web be framed with rotten handles, when our loom is well nigh done, our work is new to begin. God send the weaver true prentices again, and let them be denizens.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    But pale despair and cold tranquillity,
    Nature’s vast frame, the web of human things,
    Birth and the grave, that are not as they were.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Ye whose clay-cold heads and luke-warm hearts can argue down or mask your passions—tell me, what trespass is it that man should have them?... If nature has so wove her web of kindness, that some threads of love and desire are entangled with the piece—must the whole web be rent in drawing them out?
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
