Famous quotes containing the words long, john and/or silver:

    It has always been my practice to cast a long paragraph in a single mould, to try it by my ear, to deposit it in my memory, but to suspend the action of the pen till I had given the last polish to my work.
    Edward Gibbon (1737–1794)

    I, a poor peasant, have conquered science. Why can’t I conquer love? Don’t you understand? You must be mine, not his. You are mine.
    P. J. Wolfson, John L. Balderston (1899–1954)

    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall,
    Or as a moat defensive to a house
    Against the envy of less happier lands;
    This bless├Ęd plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
