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 hastnd widowhood with the gold
Of Matrimonial treason: so farewel.”
—John Milton (16081674)
“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 evn with blood
To wash away my stubborn thought:
For I will do or suffer what I ought.”
—George Herbert (15931633)
