Famous quotes containing the word holds:

    Life every man holds dear, but the dear man
    Holds honor far more precious-dear than life.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Wise Draco comes, deep in the midnight roll
    Of black artillery; he comes, though late;
    In code corroborating Calvin’s creed
    And cynic tyrannies of honest kings;
    He comes, nor parlies; and the Town, redeemed,
    Gives thanks devout; nor, being thankful, heeds
    The grimy slur on the Republic’s faith implied,
    Which holds that Man is naturally good,
    And—more—is Nature’s Roman, never to be
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    He holds him with his glittering eye—
    The Wedding Guest stood still,
    And listens like a three years’ child:
    The Mariner hath his will.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
