Famous quotes containing the words cutlass and/or supreme:
“Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
It tips the guards cutlass and silvers this nook;
But twill die in the dawning of Billys last day.
A jewel-block theyll make of me to-morrow,
Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly
O, tis me, not the sentence theyll suspend.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“A supreme love, a motive that gives a sublime rhythm to a womans life, and exalts habit into partnership with the souls highest needs, is not to be had where and how she wills.”
—George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
