Famous quotes containing the word wash:

    When lovely woman stoops to folly,
    And finds too late that men betray,
    What charm can soothe her melancholy,
    What art can wash her guilt away?

    The only art her guilt to cover,
    To hide her shame from every eye,
    To give repentance to her lover,
    And wring his bosom—is to die.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1730?–1774)

    Even like two little bank-dividing brooks,
    That wash the pebbles with their wanton streams,
    And having ranged and searched a thousand nooks,
    Meet both at length in silver-breasted Thames
    Where in a greater current they conjoin:
    So I my Best-Beloved’s am, so he is mine.
    Francis Quarles (1592–1644)

    What if this cursed hand
    Were thicker than itself with brother’s blood,
    Is there not rain enough in the sweet heavens
    To wash it white as snow?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
