Famous quotes containing the words missiles and/or hercules:

    Our missiles always make too short an arc:
    They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
    The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I was with Hercules and Cadmus once,
    When in a wood of Crete they bayed the bear
    With hounds of Sparta: never did I hear
    Such gallant chiding; for besides the groves,
    The skies, the fountains, every region near
    Seemed all one mutual cry. I never heard
    So musical a discord, such sweet thunder.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
