Famous quotes containing the words circle and/or hue:

    They will mark the stone-battlements
    And the circle of them
    With a bright stain.
    They will cast out the dead
    A sight for Priam’s queen to lament
    And her frightened daughters.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscovered country from whose bourn
    No traveler returns, puzzles the will,

    Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
