Famous quotes containing the word dove:

    The dove and very blessed spirit of peace.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Whenever I dove in a breast high shoal,
    Wherever I ramped in the clover quilts,
    Whatsoever I did in the coal-
    Black night, I left my quivering prints.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    They were masculine toys. They were tall wishes. They were the ribs of the modern world.
    —Rita Dove (b. 1952)
