Famous quotes containing the word tales:

    Among the Indians he had fought;
    And with him many tales he brought
    Of pleasure and of fear;
    Such tales as told to any Maid
    By such a Youth, in the green shade,
    Were perilous to hear.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Shall we rest us here,
    And by relating tales of others’ griefs,
    See if ‘twill teach us to forget our own?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A curious thing about atrocity stories is that they mirror, instead of the events they purport to describe, the extent of the hatred of the people that tell them.
    Still, you can’t listen unmoved to tales of misery and murder.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
