Famous quotes containing the word lap:

    The seasons alter; hoary-headed frosts
    Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose,
    And on old Hiems’ thin and icy crown
    An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds
    Is, as in mockery, set.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Beatrice. Will you go hear this news, signor?
    Benedick. I will live in thy heart, die in thy lap and be buried in thy eyes; and moreover, I will go with thee to thy uncle’s.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The plum my mother picked matured slowly,
    The boy she dropped from darkness at her side
    Into the sided lap of light grew strong....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
