Famous quotes containing the word chief:

    Pernicious weed! whose scent the fair annoys,
    Unfriendly to society’s chief joys.
    William Cowper (1731–1800)

    Is not disease the rule of existence? There is not a lily pad floating on the river but has been riddled by insects. Almost every shrub and tree has its gall, oftentimes esteemed its chief ornament and hardly to be distinguished from the fruit. If misery loves company, misery has company enough. Now, at midsummer, find me a perfect leaf or fruit.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The chief imagination of Christendom,
    Dante Alighieri, so utterly found himself
    That he has made that hollow face of his
    More plain to the mind’s eye than any face
    But that of Christ.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
