Famous quotes containing the words rat and/or king:

    It is restful, tragedy, because one knows that there is no more lousy hope left. You know you’re caught, caught at last like a rat with all the world on its back. And the only thing left to do is shout—not moan, or complain, but yell out at the top of your voice whatever it was you had to say. What you’ve never said before. What perhaps you don’t even know till now.
    Jean Anouilh (1910–1987)

    I am the king of courtesy ... a Corinthian, a lad of mettle, a good boy.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
