Famous quotes containing the words festival and/or world:
“Marry, I cannot show it in rhyme, I have tried; I can find no rhyme to lady but babyMan innocent rhyme; for scorn, hornMa hard rhyme; for school, foolMa babbling rhyme; very ominous endings. No, I was not born under a rhyming planet, nor I cannot woo in festival terms.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Even Lust the Master of a hardned Face,
Blushes if thou beest in the place,
To darkness Curtains he retires,
In Sympathizing Night he rowls his smoaky Fires.
When, Goddess, thou liftst up thy wakened Head,
Out of the Mornings purple bed,
Thy Quire of Birds about thee play,
And all the joyful world salutes the rising day.”
—Abraham Cowley (16181667)
