Famous quotes containing the words giants, young and/or marble:
“But can see better there, and laughing there
Pity the giants wallowing on the plain.
Pygmies expand in cold impossible air,
Cry fie on the giantshine, poor glory which
Pounds breast-bone punily, screeches, and has
Reached no Alps: or, knows no Alps to reach.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
“I saw young Harry with his beaver on,
His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly armed,
Rise from the ground like feathered Mercury,
And vaulted with such ease into his seat
As if an angel dropped down from the clouds
To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus,
And witch the world with noble horsemanship.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“A Turkish baththat marble paradise of sherbert and sodomy.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
