Famous quotes containing the word bound:

    Poetry is a very complex art.... It is an art of pure sound bound in through an art of arbitrary and conventional symbols.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    The only way to spend New Year’s Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel. Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    When I received this [coronation] ring I solemnly bound myself in marriage to the realm; and it will be quite sufficient for the memorial of my name and for my glory, if, when I die, an inscription be engraved on a marble tomb, saying, “Here lieth Elizabeth, which reigned a virgin, and died a virgin.”
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
