Famous quotes containing the word colic:

    Diseased nature oftentimes breaks forth
    In strange eruptions; oft the teeming earth
    Is with a kind of colic pinched and vexed
    By the imprisoning of unruly wind
    Within her womb, which, for enlargement striving,
    Shakes the old beldame earth, and topples down
    Steeples and moss-grown towers.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
