Famous quotes containing the word region:

    I was with Hercules and Cadmus once,
    When in a wood of Crete they bayed the bear
    With hounds of Sparta: never did I hear
    Such gallant chiding; for besides the groves,
    The skies, the fountains, every region near
    Seemed all one mutual cry. I never heard
    So musical a discord, such sweet thunder.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
