Set

Famous quotes containing the word set:

    I had rather hear a brazen canstick turned,
    Or a dry wheel grate on the axle-tree,
    And that would set my teeth nothing on edge,
    Nothing so much as mincing poetry.
    ‘Tis like the forced gait of a shuffling nag.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    He could walk, or rather turn about in his little garden, and feel more solid happiness from the flourishing of a cabbage or the growing of a turnip than was ever received from the most ostentatious show the vanity of man could possibly invent. He could delight himself with thinking, “Here will I set such a root, because my Camilla likes it; here, such another, because it is my little David’s favorite.”
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    Who set this ancient quarrel new abroach?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
