Famous quotes containing the word phoenix:

    Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion’s paws,
    And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
    Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger’s jaws,
    And burn the long-liv’d phoenix in her blood;
    Make glad and sorry seasons as thou fleet’st,
    And do what’er thou wilt, swift-footed Time,
    To the wide world and all her fading sweets;
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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)
