Famous quotes containing the words king, city and/or maple:

    To be a king and wear a crown is more glorious to them that see it than it is pleasure to them that bear it.

    Behold now this vast city; a city of refuge, the mansion house of liberty, encompassed and surrounded with his protection; the shop of war hath not there more anvils and hammers waking, to fashion out the plates and instruments of armed justice in defence of beleaguered truth, than there be pens and hands there, sitting by their studious lamps, musing, searching, revolving new notions.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Once they came on a maple in a glade,
    Standing alone with smooth arms lifted up,
    And every leaf of foliage she’d worn
    Laid scarlet and pale pink about her feet.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
