Famous quotes containing the word registered:

    Let fame, that all hunt after in their lives,
    Live registered upon our brazen tombs,
    And then grace us in the disgrace of death;
    When spite of cormorant devouring Time,
    Th’ endeavor of this present breath may buy
    That honor which shall bate his scythe’s keen edge,
    And make us heirs of all eternity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Out of the darkness where Philomela sat,
    Her fairy numbers issued. What then ailed me?
    My ears are called capacious but they failed me,
    Her classics registered a little flat!
    I rose, and venomously spat.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    But ice-crunching and loud gum-chewing, together with drumming on tables, and whistling the same tune seventy times in succession, because they indicate an indifference on the part of the perpetrator to the rest of the world in general, are not only registered on the delicate surfaces of the brain but eat little holes in it until it finally collapses or blows up.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
