Famous quotes containing the words plays, music and/or knee:

    He plays o’the viol-de-gamboys, and speaks three or four languages word for word without book, and hath all the good gifts of nature.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It was a poetic recreation to watch those distant sails steering for half-fabulous ports, whose very names are a mysterious music to our ears.... It is remarkable that men do not sail the sea with more expectation. Nothing was ever accomplished in a prosaic mood.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Being kissed on the back
    of the knee is a moth
    at the windowscreen....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
