Famous quotes containing the word sting:

    I perceive I have not really understood any thing, not a single
    object, and that no man ever can,
    Nature here in sight of the sea taking advantage of me to dart upon me and sting me,
    Because I have dared to open my mouth to sing at all.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Marriage has, for its share, usefulness, justice, honour, and constancy; a stale but more durable pleasure. Love is grounded on pleasure alone, and it is indeed more gratifying to the senses, keener and more acute; a pleasure stirred and kept alive by difficulties. There must be a sting and a smart in it. It ceases to be love if it has no shafts and no fire.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    A fly, Sir, may sting a stately horse and make him wince; but one is but an insect, and the other is a horse still.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
