Filled

Famous quotes containing the word filled:

    As a final instance of the force of limitations in the development of concentration, I must mention that beautiful creature, Helen Keller, whom I have known for these many years. I am filled with wonder of her knowledge, acquired because shut out from all distraction. If I could have been deaf, dumb, and blind I also might have arrived at something.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    A tragedy need not have blood and death: It’s enough ... that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy.
    Jean Racine (1639–1699)

    ‘Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
    The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
    The intertissued robe of gold and pearl,
    ...
    Not all these, laid in bed majestical,
    Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave
    Who with a body filled and vacant mind
    Gets him to rest, crammed with distressful bread.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
