Famous quotes containing the word strings:

    Bow, stubborn knees, and heart, with strings of steel,
    Be soft as sinews of the new-born babe!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    it was older sure than this year’s cutting,
    Or even last year’s or the year’s before.
    The wood was gray and the bark warping off it
    And the pile somewhat sunken. Clematis
    Had wound strings round and round it like a bundle.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Love’s the only thing I’ve thought of or read about since I was knee-high. That’s what I always dreamed of, of meeting somebody and falling in love. And when that remarkable thing happened, I was going to recite poetry to her for hours about how her heart’s an angel’s wing and her hair the strings of a heavenly harp. Instead I got drunk and hollered at her and called her a harpy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
