Famous quotes containing the word deck:

    Think, when we talk of horses, that you see them
    Printing their proud hooves i’ the receiving earth;
    For ‘tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
    The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
    The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
    While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    And every sea-god pays a gem,
    Yearly out of his watery cell,
    To deck great Neptune’s diadem.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)
