Famous quotes containing the words joint and/or stars:

    Let me approach at least, and touch thy hand.
    [Samson:] Not for thy life, lest fierce remembrance wake
    My sudden rage to tear thee joint by joint.
    At distance I forgive thee, go with that;
    Bewail thy falsehood, and the pious works
    It hath brought forth to make thee memorable
    Among illustrious women, faithful wives:
    Cherish thy hast’n’d widowhood with the gold
    Of Matrimonial treason: so farewel.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    I, who had heard of music in the spheres,
    But not of speech in stars, began to muse:
    But turning to my God, whose ministers
    The stars and all things are; If I refuse,
    Dread Lord, said I, so oft my good;
    Then I refuse not ev’n with blood
    To wash away my stubborn thought:
    For I will do or suffer what I ought.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)
