Famous quotes containing the word twofold:

    Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly
    Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky—
    So this winged hour is dropped to us from above.
    Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
    This close-companioned inarticulate hour
    When twofold silence was the song of love.
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)

    A good sherris-sack hath a twofold operation in it. It
    ascends me into the brain,... makes it apprehensive, quick,
    forgetive, full of nimble, fiery, and delectable shapes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
