Famous quotes containing the words temples and/or cave:

    Within the hollow crown
    That rounds the mortal temples of a king
    Keeps Death his court, and there the antic sits,
    Scoffing his state and mocking at his pomp,
    Allowing him a breath, a little scene,
    To monarchize, be feared, and kill with looks.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    If the sea were ink
    For the words of my Lord,
    the sea would be spent before the Words of my Lord are spent.
    —Qur’An. The Cave 18:109, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
