Tricks Bid Scores

Famous quotes containing the words tricks, bid and/or scores:

    Such tricks hath strong imagination
    That, if it would but apprehend some joy,
    It comprehends some bringer of that joy;
    Or in the night, imagining some fear,
    How easy is a bush supposed a bear?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
    We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
    But were we burdened with like weight of pain,
    As much, or more, we should ourselves complain.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Why have such scores of lovely, gifted girls
    Married impossible men?
    Simple self-sacrifice may be ruled out,
    And missionary endeavour, nine times out of ten.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
