Legendary High King

Famous quotes containing the words legendary, high and/or king:

    By many a legendary tale of violence and wrong, as well as by events which have passed before their eyes, these people have been taught to look upon white men with abhorrence.... I can sympathize with the spirit which prompts the Typee warrior to guard all the passes to his valley with the point of his levelled spear, and, standing upon the beach, with his back turned upon his green home, to hold at bay the intruding European.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    That high All-seer which I dallied with
    Hath turned my feigned prayer on my head,
    And given in earnest what I begged in jest.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The great King of kings
    Hath in the table of his law commanded
    That thou shalt do no murder. Will you then
    Spurn at his edict, and fulfill a man’s?
    Take heed; for he holds vengeance in his hand
    To hurl upon their heads that break his law.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
