Famous quotes containing the word mantle:

    At last he rose, and twitch’d his mantle blue,
    Tomorrow to fresh woods and pastures new.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    There are a sort of men whose visages
    Do cream and mantle like a standing pond,
    And do a willful stillness entertain,
    With purpose to be dressed in an opinion
    Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit,
    As who should say, “I am Sir Oracle,
    And when I ope my lips let no dog bark!”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    But look, the morn in russet mantle clad
    Walks o’er the dew of yon high eastward hill.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
