Famous quotes containing the word rack:

    What we have we prize not to the worth
    Whiles we enjoy it, but being lacked and lost,
    Why, then we rack the value, then we find
    The virtue that possession would not show us
    Whiles it was ours.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Vex not his ghost. O, let him pass; he hates him
    That would upon the rack of this tough world
    Stretch him out longer.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The tender skin does not shrink from bayonets, the timid woman is not scared by fagots; the rack is not frightful, nor the rope ignominious. The poor Puritan, Antony Parsons, at the stake, tied straw on his head when the fire approached him, and said, “This is God’s hat.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
