Famous quotes containing the words sharp, henry and/or graham:

    I would have broke mine eye-strings, cracked them, but
    To look upon him, till the diminution
    Of space had pointed him sharp as my needle;
    Nay, followed him till he had melted from
    The smallness of a gnat to air, and then
    Have turned mine eye and wept.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Surely there is a time to submit to guidance and a time to take one’s own way at all hazards.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    For you alone I ride the ring,
    For you I wear the blue;
    For you alone I strive to sing,
    O tell me how to woo!
    —Robert Graham (1735–1797)
