Famous quotes containing the word crown:

    ‘Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
    The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
    The intertissued robe of gold and pearl,
    Not all these, laid in bed majestical,
    Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave
    Who with a body filled and vacant mind
    Gets him to rest, crammed with distressful bread.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
