Famous quotes containing the word deck:

    And deck the bananas in leaves
    Plucked from the Carib trees,
    Fibrous and dangling down,
    Oozing cantankerous gum
    Out of their purple maws....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    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)

    The almost universal bareness and smoothness of the landscape were as agreeable as novel, making it so much more like the deck of a vessel.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
