Famous quotes containing the word painted:

    How many paltry, foolish, painted things
    That now in coaches trouble every street
    Shall be forgotten, whom no poet sings,
    Ere they be well wrapped in their winding-sheet!
    Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    He had forty-two boxes, all carefully packed,
    With his name painted clearly on each:
    But, since he omitted to mention the fact,
    They were all left behind on the beach.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Now as at all times I can see in the mind’s eye,
    In their stiff, painted clothes, the pale unsatisfied ones
    Appear and disappear in the blue depth of the sky
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
