Famous quotes containing the word castles:

    Where are our castles now, where are our towers?
    Sir Thomas More (1478–1535)

    Once we begin to appreciate that the apparent destructiveness of the toddler in taking apart a flower or knocking down sand castles is in fact a constructive effort to understand unity, we are able to revise our view of the situation, moving from reprimand and prohibition to the intelligent channeling of his efforts and the fostering of discovery.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    Though castles topple on their warder’s heads,
    Though palaces and pyramids do slope
    Their heads to their foundations; though the treasure
    Of nature’s germens tumble all together,
    Even till destruction sicken—answer me
    To what I ask you.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
