Famous quotes containing the word sank:

    I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris and he;
    I galloped, Dirck galloped, we galloped all three;
    “Good speed!” cried the watch as the gate-bolts undrew,
    “Speed!” echoed the wall to us galloping through.
    Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
    And into the midnight we galloped abreast.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    We took one look round,
    Then sank out of sight like trolls underground....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Men will tell you sometimes that “money’s hard.” That shows it was not made to eat, I say.... Some of those who sank with the steamer the other day found out that money was heavy too.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
