Famous quotes containing the word kings:

    High on a throne of royal state, which far
    Outshone the wealth of Ormus and of Ind,
    Or where the gorgeous East with richest hand
    Show’rs on her kings barbaric pearl and gold,
    Satan exalted sat, by merit raised
    To that bad eminence; and, from despair
    Thus high uplifted beyond hope, aspires
    Beyond thus high, insatiate to pursue
    Vain war with Heav’n, and by success untaught,
    His proud imaginations
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    “He’s asleep, ain’t he?” “With kings and counsellors,” murmured I.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    One who puts on armor should not brag like one who takes it off.
    Bible: Hebrew, 1 Kings 20:11.
