Famous quotes containing the word beads:

    Tell me how many beads there are
    In a silver chain
    Of evening rain,
    Unravelled from the tumbling main,
    And threading the eye of a yellow star:—
    So many times do I love again.
    Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803–1849)

    Irish Catholics are more interested in the rosary beads than in the rosary ...
    Bernadette Devlin (b. 1947)

    Thy spirit within thee hath been so at war,
    And thus hath so bestirred thee in thy sleep,
    That beads of sweat have stood upon thy brow,
    Like bubbles in a late-disturbed stream.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
