Famous quotes containing the word bid:

    Teaches with no telling
    That the phoenix’ bid for heaven and the desire after
    Death in the carved nunnery
    Both shall fail if I bow not to your blessing....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    O, call back yesterday, bid time return.

    Such notes as, warbled to the string,
    Drew iron tears down Pluto’s cheek,
    And made Hell grant what love did seek;
    John Milton (1608–1674)
