Famous quotes containing the word phoenix:

    A victorious tomcat is like a tiger; a plucked phoenix is not worth a chicken.
    Chinese proverb.

    And there’s a score of duchesses, surpassing womankind,
    Or who have found a painter to make them so for pay
    And smooth out stain and blemish with the elegance of his mind:
    I knew a phoenix in my youth, so let them have their day.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A phoenix it is
    This hearse that must bless
    With aromatic gums
    That cost great sums,
    The way of thurification
    To make a fumigation,
    Sweet of reflare,
    And redolent of air,
    John Skelton (1460?–1529)
