Famous quotes containing the word web:
“Thou blind mans mark, thou fools self-chosen snare,
Fond Fancys scum and dregs of scattered thought,
Band of all evils, cradle of causeless care,
Thou web of will whose end is never wrought;
Desire! desire, I have too dearly bought
With price of mangled mind thy worthless ware;”
—Sir Philip Sidney (15541586)
