Famous quotes containing the word scales:

    Love once
    Tipped the scales but now is shadowed, invisible,
    Though mysteriously present, around somewhere.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    For these have governed in our lives,
    And see how men have warred.
    The Cross, the Crown, the Scales may all
    As well have been the Sword.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
