Famous quotes containing the word parcel:

    I will die a hundred thousand deaths
    Ere break the smallest parcel of this vow.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The source of our actions resides in an unconscious propensity to regard ourselves as the center, the cause, and the conclusion of time. Our reflexes and our pride transform into a planet the parcel of flesh and consciousness we are.
    E.M. Cioran (b. 1911)

    Have ye got the parcel there for Mrs White?
    Ye haven’t! Oh, begorra!
    Say it’s comin’ down tomorra—
    And it might now, Michael, so it might!’
    William Percy French (1854–1920)
