Famous quotes containing the words peter and/or waters:

    Most vegetarians I ever see looked enough like their food to be classed as cannibals.
    —Finley Peter Dunne (1867–1936)

    On a round ball
    A workman that hath copies by, can lay
    An Europe, Afric, and an Asia,
    And quickly make that, which was nothing, all;
    So doth each tear,
    Which thee doth wear,
    A globe, yea world, by that impression grow,
    Till thy tears mixed with mine do overflow
    This world, by waters sent from thee, my heaven dissolved so.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
