Famous quotes containing the word burnt:
“When man has neither the strength to subdue his underworld powerswhich are really the ancient powers of his old, superseded self; nor the wit to placate them with sacrifice and the burnt holocaust; then they come back at him, and destroy him again. Hence every new conquest of life means a harrowing of Hell.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“People who are always praising the past
And especially the times of faith as best
Ought to go and live in the Middle Ages
And be burnt at the stake as witches and sages.”
—Stevie Smith (19021971)
“So all were lost, which in the ship were found,
They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drownd.”
—John Donne (15721631)
