Famous quotes containing the words minister, deputy and/or chief:
“Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,
Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow,
Raze out the written troubles of the brain,
And with some sweet oblivious antidote
Cleanse the fraught bosom of that perilous stuff
Which weighs upon the heart?”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Not all the water in the rough rude sea
Can wash the balm off from an anointed king;
The breath of worldly men cannot depose
The deputy elected by the Lord.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Youre wounded! Nay, his soldiers pride
Touched to the quick, he said:
Im killed, Sire! And his Chief beside,
Smiling the boy fell dead.”
