Famous quotes containing the word coins:

    A war undertaken without sufficient monies has but a wisp of force. Coins are the very sinews of battles.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    No Time, spoke the clocks, no God, rang the bells,
    I drew the white sheet over the islands
    And the coins on my eyelids sang like shells.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
