Famous quotes containing the word tongues:

    They gathered up the crystal manna to freeze
    Their tongues with tasting, their hands with snowballing;
    Or rioted in a drift, plunging up to the knees;
    Robert Bridges (1844–1930)

    How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night,
    Like softest music to attending ears!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Now you courtly dames and knights,
    That study only strange delights,
    Though you scorn the home-spun gray
    And revel in your rich array;
    Though your tongues dissemble deep
    And can your heads from danger keep:
    Yet for all your pomp and train,
    Securer lives the silly swain.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)
