"Come not between the dragon and his wrath."

William ShakespeareKing Lear (1.1.125)

"I see nothing terrible in death. In looking to the future; I have no fear. I know in whom I have believed. - I look back upon my past life with humility. I am sensible of many imperfections that cleave to me. - I now rest my soul on the mercy of my adorable Creator, through the only meditation of His son, our Lord. Oh, what a ground of hope there is in that saying of an apostle that God is in Christ reconciling a guilty world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them. In God I have placed my eternal all and into his hands I commend my spirit."

John Brooks (1752-1825)

"He only lived but till he was a man,
The which no sooner had his prowess confirmed
In the unshrinking station where he fought
But like a man he died."

William ShakespeareMacbeth (5.8.40-43)

"I have no words;
My voice is in my sword, thou bloodier villain
Than terms can give thee out!"

William ShakespeareMacbeth (5.8.6-8)

With blood of thine already."

William ShakespeareMacbeth (5.8.5-6)

More hateful to mine ear."

"Four hundred feet."

Gordon Barrett Brooks (d. 1979)

"Would I could answer
This comfort with the like. But I have words
That would be howled out in the desert air,
Where hearing should not latch them."

William ShakespeareMacbeth (4.3.192-94)

"Angels are bright still though the brightest fell;
Though all things foul would wear the brows of grace,
Yet grace must still look so."

William ShakespeareMacbeth (4.3.21-23)
