Famous quotes containing the words honours and/or year:

    Come hither, all ye empty things,
    Ye bubbles rais’d by breath of Kings;
    Who float upon the tide of state,
    Come hither, and behold your fate.
    Let pride be taught by this rebuke,
    How very mean a thing’s a Duke;
    From all his ill-got honours flung,
    Turn’d to that dirt from whence he sprung.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    The chrysanthemums’ astringent fragrance comes
    Each year to disguise the clanking mechanism
    Of machine within machine within machine.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
