Who is unknown. the twa magicians?

Famous quotes containing the words magicians, unknown and/or twa:

    I’d rather I were dead and gone,
    And my body laid in grave,
    Ere a rusty stock o coal-black smith
    My maidenhead should have.

    They say miracles are past, and we have our philosophical
    persons, to make modern and familiar, things supernatural
    and causeless. Hence is it that we make trifles of terrors,
    ensconcing ourselves into seeming knowledge, when we should
    submit ourselves to an unknown fear.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There were twa brethren in the north,
    —Unknown. The Twa Brothers (l. 1)
