Famous quotes containing the words blackest and/or night:

    Loving in truth, and fain in verse my love to show,
    That she, dear she, might take some pleasure of my pain,
    Pleasure might cause her read, reading might make her know,
    Knowledge might pity win, and pity grace obtain,
    I sought fit words to paint the blackest face of woe:
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

    O grim-looked night, O night with hue so black,
    O night which ever art when day is not!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
