Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    we cast the vessel ashore
    On the Gulliby Isles where the Pooh-pooh smiles,
    And the Rumbletum bunders roar.
    Charles Edward Carryl (1841–1920)

    For such despite they cast on female wits:
    If what I do prove well, it won’t advance,
    They’ll say it’s stol’n, or else it was by chance.
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)

    When such as I cast out remorse
    So great a sweetness flows into the breast
    We must laugh and we must sing,
    We are blest by everything,
    Everything we look upon is blest.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
