Pent Roof Combustion

Famous quotes containing the words pent, roof and/or combustion:

    My object all sublime I shall achieve in time—
    To let the punishment fit the crime— The punishment fit the crime; And make each prisoner pent Unwillingly represent
    A source of innocent merriment! Of innocent merriment!

    The roof of England fell
    Great Paris tolled her bell
    And China staunched her milk and wept for bread
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Him the Almighty Power
    Hurld headlong flaming from th’ Ethereal Skie
    With hideous ruine and combustion down
    To bottomless perdition, there to dwell
    In Adamantine Chains and penal Fire,
    Who durst defie th’ Omnipotent to Arms.
    Nine times the Space that measures Day and Night
    To mortal men, he with his horrid crew
    Lay vanquisht, rowling in the fiery Gulfe
    John Milton (1608–1674)
