Famous quotes containing the word disgrace:
“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 scythes keen edge,
And make us heirs of all eternity.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
