Famous quotes containing the words triple and/or crown:

    And we fairies, that do run
    By the triple Hecate’s team
    From the presence of the sun,
    Following darkness like a dream,
    Now are frolic. Not a mouse
    Shall disturb this hallowed house.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    She will sing the song that pleaseth you,
    And on your eyelids crown the god of sleep,
    Charming your blood with pleasing heaviness.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
