Famous quotes containing the words reported and/or killed:
“It is reported here that the King of Prussia has gone mad and has been locked up. There would be nothing bad about that: at least that might of his would no longer be a menace, and you could breathe freely for a while. I much prefer madmen who are locked up to those who are not.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“Its whether will ye be a rank robbers wife,
Or will ye die by my wee pen knife?
Its Ill not be a rank robbers wife,
But Ill rather die by your wee pen knife.
He s killed this may and he s laid her by,
For to bear the red rose company.”
—Unknown. Babylon; or, The Bonnie Banks o Fordie (l. 914)
