Famous quotes containing the word deities:

    The gods themselves,
    Humbling their deities to love, have taken
    The shapes of beasts upon them. Jupiter
    Became a bull, and bellowed; the green Neptune
    A ram, and bleated; and the fire-robed god,
    Golden Apollo, a poor humble swain.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
