Famous quotes containing the word charing:

    Cry;—and upon thy so sore loss
    Shall shine the traffic of Jacob’s ladder
    Pitched betwixt Heaven and Charing Cross.
    Francis Thompson (1859–1907)

    As I was going by Charing Cross,
    I saw a black man upon a black horse;
    They told me it was King Charles the First—
    —Unknown. As I was going by Charing Cross (l. 1–3)

    I went out to Charing Cross to see Major-General Harrison hanged, drawn and quartered—which was done there—he looking as cheerful as any man could do in that condition.
    Samuel Pepys (1633–1703)
