Famous quotes containing the word antony:
“The tender skin does not shrink from bayonets, the timid woman is not scared by fagots; the rack is not frightful, nor the rope ignominious. The poor Puritan, Antony Parsons, at the stake, tied straw on his head when the fire approached him, and said, This is Gods hat.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
