Famous quotes containing the words upper and/or girdle:

    When my old wife lived, upon
    This day she was both pantler, butler, cook,
    Both dame and servant, welcomed all, served all,
    Would sing her song and dance her turn, now here
    At upper end o’the table, now i’the middle,
    On his shoulder, and his, her face afire
    With labor, and the thing she took to quench it
    She would to each one sip.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There are no stars to-night
    But those of memory.
    Yet how much room for memory there is
    In the loose girdle of soft rain.
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
