Reported Killed

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 (1694–1773)

    Its whether will ye be a rank robber’s wife,
    Or will ye die by my wee pen knife?

    Its I’ll not be a rank robber’s wife,
    But I’ll 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. 9–14)
