Famous quotes containing the words deepest and/or cut:

    I’ve no time now, but believe me as surely as the moon will set and the sun will rise I shall kill you tomorrow night. I shall kill you even if you hide in the deepest cave of the earth. At ten o’clock tomorrow night, I shall kill you.
    R.C. Sherriff (1896–1975)

    Less smooth than her Skin and less white than her breast
    Was this pollisht stone beneath which she lyes prest
    Stop, Reader, and Sigh while thou thinkst on the rest

    With a just trim of Virtue her Soul was endu’d
    Not affectedly Pious nor secretly lewd,
    She cut even between the Cocquet and the Prude.
    Matthew Prior (1664–1721)
