Famous quotes containing the words block and/or musgrave:

    Of course I lie to people. But I lie altruistically—for our mutual good. The lie is the basic building block of good manners. That may seem mildly shocking to a moralist—but then what isn’t?
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    Quoth she, “I have loved thee, Little Musgrave,
    Full long and many a day;”
    “So have I loved you, faire lady,
    Yet never a word durst I say.”

    Full daintyly it is deight;
    If thou wilt wend thither, thou Little Musgrave,
    Thou’s lig in mine armes all night.”
