Famous quotes containing the word upper:

    When my old wife lived, upon
    This day she was both pantler, butler, cook,
    Both dame and servant, welcomed all, served all,
    Would sing her song and dance her turn, now here
    At upper end o’the table, now i’the middle,
    On his shoulder, and his, her face afire
    With labor, and the thing she took to quench it
    She would to each one sip.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The first to strike will gain the upper hand.
    Chinese proverb.

    Give me the islands of the upper air,
    all mountains
    and the towering mountain trees.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
