Enclosed

Famous quotes containing the word enclosed:

    The flame o’ th’ taper
    Bows toward her, and would under-peep her lids,
    To see th’ enclosed lights, now canopied
    Under these windows, white and azure laced
    With blue of heaven’s own tinct.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I have often wondered how they manage to get return envelopes which miss, by one-quarter of an inch, fitting the blank you are supposed to return. They say, “Please fill out and return the enclosed envelope,” and the enclosed envelope is always one-quarter of an inch too small.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    One certainly has a soul; but how it came to allow itself to be enclosed in a body is more than I can imagine. I only know if once mine gets out, I’ll have a bit of a tussle before I let it get in again to that of any other.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
