Moat House

Famous quotes containing the words moat and/or house:

    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 blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The house came to be haunted by the unspoken phrase: There must be more money! There must be more money!
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
