Smothered and Covered

Famous quotes containing the words covered and/or smothered:

    The tracks of moose, more or less recent, to speak literally, covered every square rod on the sides of the mountain; and these animals are probably more numerous there now than ever before, being driven into this wilderness, from all sides, by the settlements.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical,
    Shakes so my single state of man,
    That function is smothered in surmise,
    And nothing is but what is not.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
