Famous quotes containing the word carol:

    Prose—it might be speculated—is discourse; poetry ellipsis. Prose is spoken aloud; poetry overheard. The one is presumably articulate and social, a shared language, the voice of “communication”; the other is private, allusive, teasing, sly, idiosyncratic as the spider’s delicate web, a kind of witchcraft unfathomable to ordinary minds.
    —Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)

    Herod, the king,
    In his raging,
    Charged he hath, this day,
    His men of might
    In his owne sight
    All yonge children to slay.
    —Unknown. Coventry Carol (l. 10–15)

    Ten for the Ten Commandments

    Eleven for the ‘leven that went to heaven

    Twelve for the twelve Apostles
