Crowns quotes by Alan Moore
#1. Live knowing that you are already dust, long gone, already outside time and looking in, reviewing life, finally understanding every déja vu, your own guardian angel. Know that the scorched-black demons and the pristine, fluttering seraphs are in some sense naught but you yourself unpacked, unfolded in a higher space from whence the myriad gods unfurl, not bygone legends but your once and future selves, your attributes blossomed into their purest and most potent symbol-forms. And these, with all their beast-heats, crowns and lightings, all their different colors, are become combined into the single whiteness that is godhead. That is all.

This, then, is revelation. All is one, and all is deity, this beautiful undying fire of being that is everywhere about us; that we are. O man, o woman, know yourself, and know you are divine. Respect yourself, respect the least phenomenon of your existence as it were the breath of God. Know that our universe is all one place, a single firelit room, all time a single moment. Know that there has only ever been one person here. Know you are everything, forever. Know I love you. #Quote by Alan Moore
Crowns quotes by Hafez
#2. How seek the way which leadeth to our wishes? By renouncing our wishes. The crown of excellence is renunciation. #Quote by Hafez
Crowns quotes by Luc De Clapiers
#3. You can purchase the mind of Pascal for a crown. Pleasures even cheaper are sold to those who give themselves up to them. It is only luxuries and objects of caprice that are rare and difficult to obtain; unfortunately they are the only things that touch the curiosity and taste of ordinary men. #Quote by Luc De Clapiers
Crowns quotes by William J. Clinton
#4. I don't know whether it's the finest public housing in America or the crown jewel of the American penal system. #Quote by William J. Clinton

Crowns quotes by Ann Romney

Crowns quotes by Sadao Araki
#8. The foundations of our Empire are now based more firmly than ever! The birth of a Crown Prince shows that the prosperity of the Imperial Household is increasing many times. #Quote by Sadao Araki
Crowns quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo
#9. That crown on her head is very heavy, that's why she is smiling like that, smiling like she just ate a whole bunch of unripe guavas. It's heavy because it's made of gold, Godknows says.
I thought crowns were made of thorns. I saw a picture of it in the Bible, when they were killing Jesus, Sbho says. #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo
Crowns quotes by Rick Warren
#10. It is a fatal mistake to assume that God's goal for your life is material prosperity or popular success, as the world defines it. The abundant life has nothing to do with material abundance, and faithfulness to God does not guarantee success in a career or even ministry. Never focus on temporary crowns. #Quote by Rick Warren
Crowns quotes by Caryll Houselander
#11. The Child Christ lives on from generation to generation in the poets, very often the frailest of men but men whose frailty is redeemed by a child's unworldliness, by a child's delight in loveliness, by the spirit of wonder.

Christ was a poet, and all through His life the Child remains perfect in Him. It was the poet, the unworldly poet, who was King of the invisible kingdom; the priests and rulers could not understand that. The poets understand it, and they, too, are kings of the invisible kingdom, vassal kings of the Lord of Love, and their crowns are crowns of thorns indeed. #Quote by Caryll Houselander
Crowns quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#12. And Satan smiled, stretched out his hand, and said, O War, of all the scourges of humanity, I crown you chief. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson
Crowns quotes by Plutarch
#13. And Archimedes, as he was washing, thought of a manner of computing the proportion of gold in King Hiero's crown by seeing the water flowing over the bathing-stool. He leaped up as one possessed or inspired, crying, "I have found it! Eureka!". #Quote by Plutarch
Crowns quotes by Lauryn Hill
#14. Place your attention 6 inches above your crown. God is breathing in and out there. #Quote by Lauryn Hill
Crowns quotes by John Of Kronstadt
#15. When you are subjected to the malicious and furious violence of the passions, and to the harassments of the Devil, during the fulfillment of various works for God, accept these sufferings as sufferings for the name of Christ, and rejoice in your sufferings, thanking God; for the Devil is preparing you, without knowing it himself, the most shining crowns from the Lord. #Quote by John Of Kronstadt
Crowns quotes by Martin Luther

Crowns quotes by O. Henry
#21. True adventurers have never been plentiful. They who are set down in print as such have been mostly business men with newly invented methods. They have been out after the things they wanted - golden fleeces, holy grails, lady loves, treasures, crowns, and fame. The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate. A fine example was the Prodigal Sob - when he started back home. #Quote by O. Henry
Crowns quotes by Virgil
#22. A chaplet of leaves crowns the victor. #Quote by Virgil
Crowns quotes by Mirriam Neal
#23. SOUNDS GROSS," he said. "SALAZAR PREFERS WOOD. TAPESTRIES ARE ALSO ACCEPTABLE. #Quote by Mirriam Neal
Crowns quotes by Italo Calvino
#24. His trees were now hung all over with scrawled pieces of paper and bits of cardboard with maxims from Seneca and Shaftesbury, and with various objects; clusters of feathers, church candles, crowns of leaves, women's corsets, pistols, scales, tied to each other in certain order. The Ombrosians used to spend hours trying to guess what those symbols meant: nobles, Pope, virtue, war? I think some of them had no meaning at all but just served to jog his memory and make him realize that even the most uncommon ideas could be right. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#25. The end crowns all,
And that old common arbitrator, Time,
Will one day end it. #Quote by William Shakespeare

Crowns quotes by Francis Quarles
#27. Things temporal are sweeter in the expectation, things eternal are sweeter in the fruition; the first shames thy hope, the second crowns it; it is a vain journey, whose end affords less pleasure than the way. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Crowns quotes by Huey Long
#28. Every man a king, but no one wears a crown. #Quote by Huey Long

that I did fill the high tide of my soul with truth.
I repaid vileness with doves. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Crowns quotes by Chris Albrecht
#30. Movie people think things are movies, and authors think things should be movies because, up until recently, movies have been the jewel in the crown. But, that seems to be changing. #Quote by Chris Albrecht

#33. Awake, my soul! Stretch every nerve, And press with vigor on; A heavenly race demands thy zeal, And an immortal crown. #Quote by Philip Doddridge
Crowns quotes by Michael Tsarion
#34. Most historians accept that Egypt was a cradle of civilization, and that many cultural idioms and traditions come from there. What has yet to be understood, however, is the manner in which Egypt inherited its cultural elements from the lands of the North-West. This fact is not known today because of the threat it poses to Rome and London, the Vatican and Crown, and to all those who have profited from the suppression of knowledge. #Quote by Michael Tsarion
Crowns quotes by Edsel Ford
#35. There are no crown princes at Ford, #Quote by Edsel Ford
Crowns quotes by Marci Shimoff

Crowns quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#37. The demon kept pulling him unconscious, and in those short bursts of blackness, the dreamer snatched at light, and when he swam back to consciousness, he thrust the dream into reality. He shaped them into flapping creatures and earthbound stars and flaming crowns and golden notes that sang by themselves and mint leaves scattered across the blood-streaked pavement and scraps of paper with jagged handwriting on them: Unguibus et rostro.
But he was dying. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Crowns quotes by Ben Jonson
#38. Minds that are great and free, should not on fortune pause: 'Tis crown enough to virtue still, her own applause. #Quote by Ben Jonson
Crowns quotes by Winifred Holtby
#39. The crown of life is neither happiness nor annihilation; it is understanding. #Quote by Winifred Holtby
Crowns quotes by Katlego Kol-Kes
#40. I don't call myself a princess because
they wear dainty crowns
But you – my people – gave me
a weighty crown of thorns. #Quote by Katlego Kol-Kes
Crowns quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#41. But the best argument of all [for evangelism] is to be found in the wounds of Jesus. You want to honor Him, you desire to put many crowns upon His head, and this you can best do by winning souls for Him. These are the spoils that He covets, these are the trophies for which He fights, these are the jewels that shall be His best adornment. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Crowns quotes by Thomas Heywood
#42. Content's a kingdom, and I wear that crown. #Quote by Thomas Heywood
Crowns quotes by A.H. Septimius
#43. Crowns are hourly tumbling. #Quote by A.H. Septimius
Crowns quotes by Kresley Cole
#44. I started my career early." At my raised brows, he said, "Assassin. My deadly gift made me well suited for the job. A single handshake could bring down a monarchy. The money grew over the centuries."

His tone was blank; I couldn't tell how he felt about his past deeds.

"So that's where you got those crowns." Trying to keep things light, I said, "Admit it - you wear them when no one's around. Play air tennis with the scepters?"

"No, Empress. I do not."

"Can I, can I?"

On the verge of grinning, he said, "No, Empress, you may not. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Crowns quotes by Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare

Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#48. Cressida: My lord, will you be true?
Troilus: Who, I? Alas, it is my vice, my fault:
Whiles others fish with craft for great opinion,
I with great truth catch mere simplicity;
Whilst some with cunning gild their copper crowns,
With truth and plainness I do wear mine bare.
Fear not my truth: the moral of my wit
Is "plain and true"; there's all the reach of it. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crowns quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#49. The Lord has many lovers of His crown but few lovers of His Cross. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Crowns quotes by Emma Chase
#50. Ellie stops walking and turns to the display in front of her. It's a bed - four-poster canopy, ornate and curtained with intricate, gold-trimmed, royal-blue and purple fabric. She reads the description off the plaque on the wall. "The bed of His Majesty King Reginald the Second and Queen Margaret Anastasia of Wessco. That's Queen Lenora's parents, right?"

"Yeah."

She gazes back at the bed with a longing sigh. "Wow. I can't imagine living like this every day. Servants and castles and crowns - how perfect would that be?" She points at the opulent bed. "Queen Lenora could have been conceived on this bed, right here!"

I flinch at the thought.

"Let's not speak of it. #Quote by Emma Chase
Crowns quotes by Bill Moyers
#51. There is a historic strain of dominion theology which says, taking its references from the Psalms, that man is made just a little lower than God, and that we are the crown of creation. That interpretation has come at the expense of the one that says when God, in the story of Noah, intervened to save human life against the flood, against the acts of nature, He did not stop with human beings. He made sure that every kind of animal was represented twice on that ark. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Crowns quotes by Victor Hugo
#52. Alas! sir," said Gringoire, "I would that I could lend you some, but, my breeches are worn to holes, and 'tis not crowns which have done it. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Crowns quotes by Charles Churchill
#53. No two on earth in all things can agree;
All have some darling singularity;
Women and men, as well as girls and boys,
In gewgaws take delight, and sigh for toys,
Your sceptres and your crowns, and such like things,
Are but a better kind of toys for kings.
In things indifferent reason bids us choose,
Whether the whim's a monkey or a muse. #Quote by Charles Churchill
Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#54. Crowns have their compass-length of days their date-
Triumphs their tomb-felicity, her fate-
Of nought but earth can earth make us partaker,
But knowledge makes a king most like his Maker. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crowns quotes by Thomas Brooks
#55. Prayer crowns God with the honor and glory due to His name, and God crowns prayer with assurance and comfort. The most praying souls are the most assured souls. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Crowns quotes by J.G. Ballard
#56. The crystal trees among them were hung with glass-like trellises of moss. The air was markedly cooler, as if everything was sheathed in ice, but a ceaseless play of light poured through the canopy overhead. The process of crystallization was more advanced. The fences along the road were so encrusted that they formed a continuous palisade, a white frost at least six inches thick on either side of the palings. The few houses between the trees glistened like wedding cakes, white roofs and chimneys transformed into exotic miniarets and baroque domes. On a law of green glass spurs, a child's tricycle gleamed like a Faberge gem, the wheels starred into brilliant jasper crowns. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Crowns quotes by Virginia Woolf
#57. I have sometimes dreamt ... that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards
their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble
the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Crowns quotes by Mos Def
#58. The new moon rode high in the crown of the metropolis. Shinin', like Who on top of this? #Quote by Mos Def
Crowns quotes by Simonides Of Ceos
#59. If to die honorably is the greatest Part of virtue, for us fate's done her best. Because we fought to crown Greece with freedom We lie here enjoying timeless fame. #Quote by Simonides Of Ceos
Crowns quotes by Matt Redman
#60. Christian worship must contain both the cross and the crown. Sing of majesty, and sing of mercy. #Quote by Matt Redman
Crowns quotes by Oliver Lodge
#61. The discovery which has been pointed to by theory is always one of profound interest and importance, but it is usually the close and crown of a long and fruitful period, whereas the discovery which comes as a puzzle and surprise usually marks a fresh epoch and opens a new chapter in science. #Quote by Oliver Lodge
Crowns quotes by Jeremiah Tower
#62. Any meal at the front was an exercise in war-time ingenuity and devotion of the lower classes for their officers. The Petite Marmite a la Thermit was from beef-broth cubes, the tinned Canadian salmon was called Saumon de Tin A & Q Sauce. The Epaule d'Agneau Wellington, N.Z. was army ration lamb, and the terrine of foie gras aux truffes was a can of foie gras that I had bought from the French commanding general. There was a salad of fresh lettuce from somewhere (no one asked in what or whose fertilizer it had been grown in since we would all soon be dead anyway) and the Macedoine de Fruits a la Quatre Bas was a can of mixed fruit. Then fresh strawberries soaked in Cognac. All the usual wines starting with an amontillado, Pommery Extra Sec, Chateau Steenworde Claret, Graham's Five Crowns Port, Bisquit Dubouche Grande Champagne Cognac, Brandy and a Waterloo Cup. #Quote by Jeremiah Tower
Crowns quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#63. Remember, that money is of the prolific, generating nature. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Crowns quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#64. Once more September marveled that even the Dodo knew what she wanted to be when she was grown. She simply could not think what she herself might do. September expected that destinies, which is how she thought of professions, simply landed upon one like a crown, and ever after no one questioned or fretted over it, being sure of one's own use in the world. It was only that somehow her crown had not yet appeared. She did hope it would hurry up. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Crowns quotes by Jonathan Swift
#65. A prince, the moment he is crown'd,
Inherits every virtue sound,
As emblems of the sovereign power,
Like other baubles in the Tower:
Is generous, valiant, just, and wise,
And so continues till he dies. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Crowns quotes by Patti Smith
#66. I don't believe people playing rock n' roll should have crowns. We're not kings and queens. Anybody can play it. #Quote by Patti Smith
Crowns quotes by Richard Siken
#67. Tonight you're thinking of cities under crowns
of snow and I stare at you like I'm looking through a window,
counting birds. #Quote by Richard Siken
Crowns quotes by Oscar Wilde
#68. Popularity is the crown of laurel which the world puts on bad art. Whatever is popular is wrong. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Crowns quotes by George R R Martin
#69. Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds. #Quote by George R R Martin
Crowns quotes by Francis Quarles
#70. If God send thee a cross, take it up willingly and follow him. Use it wisely, lest it be unprofitable. Bear it patiently, lest it be intolerable. If it be light, slight it not. If it be heavy, murmur not. After the cross is the crown. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Crowns quotes by Tony Benn
#71. If the Queen can reject the advice of a minister on a little thing like a postage stamp, what would happen if she rejected the advice of the Prime Minister on a major matter? If the Crown personally can reject advice, then, of course, the whole democratic facade turns out to be false #Quote by Tony Benn
Crowns quotes by Isaac Bonewits
#72. Far from being the crown of human thought and religion as its supporters have claimed for several bloody millennia, [monotheism] is in fact a monstrous step backwards
a step that has been responsible for more human misery than any other idea in known history. #Quote by Isaac Bonewits
Crowns quotes by Shannon Hale
#73. You, what are you? The brat of lucky parents who were related to a childless king. There is no such thing as royal blood. I believe we are what we make ourselves, and as such, you, Crown Princess, are nothing. #Quote by Shannon Hale
Crowns quotes by Francis Beaumont
#74. The greatest attribute of Heaven is mercy. #Quote by Francis Beaumont
Crowns quotes by Bernard Bailyn
#75. Never had Parliament or the crown, or both together, operated in actuality as theory indicated sovereign powers should. #Quote by Bernard Bailyn
Crowns quotes by Agona Apell
#76. Fortune crowns the bold before the worthy #Quote by Agona Apell
Crowns quotes by Edward Gibbon
#77. I have somewhere heard or read the frank confession of a Benedictine abbot: "My vow of poverty has given me a hundred thousand crowns a year; my vow of obedience has raised me to the rank of a sovereign prince." - I forget the consequences of his vow of chastity. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Crowns quotes by Angie Frazier
#78. Whiskey?" Camille cried as she stood on a wharf in Port Adelaide harbor. "You brought us onto a whiskey cargo ship?"
Ira spread out his arms. "And rum, love. Don't forget the rum."
The high tide slowly swallowed the wharf pilings, and the Juggernaut, a whiskey runner, was in the final process of loading.
"Listen," Ira said to both Oscar and Camille, who looked at their escort with doubt. "There couldn't be a better cargo to ride with than whiskey and rum. You think if there were pots and pans and spoons in there, the captain would take her full chisel to Talladay? People pay a pretty price for liquor, mates, and the ones delivering it make out like bandits."
The Juggernaut wasn't worth the ten crowns it cost Monty to secure a spot aboard. The schooner didn't look seaworthy with its chipped paint, barnacle-covered hull, sloppy lines, and patched canvas sail. #Quote by Angie Frazier
Crowns quotes by John Muir
#79. No traveler, whether a tree lover or not, will ever forget his first walk in a sugar-pine forest. The majestic crowns approaching one another make a glorious canopy, through the feathery arches of which the sunbeams pour, silvering the needles and gilding the stately columns and the ground into a scene of enchantment. #Quote by John Muir
Crowns quotes by May Sarton
#80. We saw the strong trees struggle and their plumes do down, The poplar bend and whip back till it split to fall, The elm tear up at the root and topple like a crown, The pine crack at the base - we had to watch them all. The ash, the lovely cedar. We had to watch them fall. They went so softly under the loud flails of air, Before that fury they went down like feathers, With all the hundred springs that flowered in their hair, and all the years, endured in all the weathers - To fall as if they were nothing, as if they were feathers. #Quote by May Sarton
Crowns quotes by Sigourney Weaver
#81. I made fun of myself before everybody else could, so I always got the comic crowns: Freshman Fink, Sophomore Fairy, Junior Birdman. I got all three of them! #Quote by Sigourney Weaver
Crowns quotes by Joel Brown
#82. Forget the haters! They just want the crown! #Quote by Joel Brown
Crowns quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#83. Modest humility is beauty's crown. #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Crowns quotes by Martin Luther
#84. They gave our Master a crown of thorns, why do we hope for a crown of roses? #Quote by Martin Luther
Crowns quotes by Holly Black
#85. Vivi blows a noisemaker. "Here," she says, passing out paper crowns for us to wear.

"This is ridiculous," I complain, but put mine on.

Cardan looks at his reflection in the door of the microwave and adjusts his crown so it's at an angle.

I roll my eyes, and he gives me a quick grin. #Quote by Holly Black
Crowns quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#86. How anyone could endure three or four hours of chanting monks and ranting priests was beyond my understanding, just as it was beyond my understanding to know why bishops needed thrones. They would be demanding crowns next. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Crowns quotes by Alexander Pope
#87. Though triumphs were to generals only due, crowns were reserved to grace the soldiers too. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Crowns quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#88. Humility is royalty without a crown. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Crowns quotes by Cardinal Richelieu
#89. One must believe neither the people of the palace, who ordinarily measure the power of the king by the shape of his crown, which, being round, has no end, nor those who, in the excesses of an indiscreet zeal, proclaim themselves openly as partisans of Rome. #Quote by Cardinal Richelieu
Crowns quotes by Santiago Ramon Y Cajal
#90. Heroes and scholars represent the opposite extremes ... The scholar struggles for the benefit of all humanity, sometimes to reduce physical effort, sometimes to reduce pain, and sometimes to postpone death, or at least render it more bearable. In contrast, the patriot sacrifices a rather substantial part of humanity for the sake of his own prestige. His statue is always erected on a pedestal of ruins and corpses ... In contrast, all humanity crowns a scholar, love forms the pedestal of his statues, and his triumphs defy the desecration of time and the judgment of history. #Quote by Santiago Ramon Y Cajal
Crowns quotes by Casting Crowns
#91. People aren't confused bythe Gospel. They're confused by us. Jesus is the only way to God, but we are not the only way to Jesus. This world doesn't need my tie, my hoodie, my denomination or my interpretation of the Bible. They just need Jesus. We can be passionate about what we believe, but we can't strap ourselves to the Godspel, because we are slowing it down. Jesus is going to save the world, but maybe the best thing we can do is just get out of the way. #Quote by Casting Crowns
Crowns quotes by Bill Hybels
#92. God led Jesus to a cross, not a crown, and yet that cross ultimately proved to be the gateway to freedom and forgiveness for every sinner in the world. #Quote by Bill Hybels
Crowns quotes by Casting Crowns
#93. Empty hands held high
such a small sacrifice
if not joined with my life, i sing in vain tonight
may the words i say, and the things i do
make my lifesong sing to you
Let my lifesong sing to you ... #Quote by Casting Crowns
Crowns quotes by Robert Herrick
#94. Conquer we shall, but, we must first contend! It's not the fight that crowns us, but the end. #Quote by Robert Herrick
Crowns quotes by William Butler Yeats
#95. I know of the leafy paths that the witches take
Who come with their crowns of pearl and their spindles of wool,
And their secret smile, out of the depths of the lake ... #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Crowns quotes by Garry Kasparov
#96. All that now seems to stand between Nigel and the prospect of the world crown is the unfortunate fact that fate brought him into this world only two years after Kasparov. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Crowns quotes by Noah Webster
#97. AB'ACOT, noun The cap of State, formerly used by English Kings, wrought into the figure of two crowns. #Quote by Noah Webster
Crowns quotes by Lord Byron
#98. Tis pleasant purchasing our fellow-creatures; And all are to be sold, if you consider Their passions, and are dext'rous; some by features Are brought up, others by a warlike leader; Some by a place
as tend their years or natures; The most by ready cash
but all have prices, From crowns to kicks, according to their vices. #Quote by Lord Byron
Crowns quotes by Robert E. Howard
#99. Gleaming shell of an outworn lie; fable of Right divine
You gained your crowns by heritage, but Blood was the price of mine.
The throne that I won by blood and sweat , by Crom, I will not sell
For promise of valleys filled with gold, or threat of the Halls of Hell! #Quote by Robert E. Howard
Crowns quotes by Edward Hopper
#100. Everyone goes to the 'Grands-Boulevards' (in Paris, ed.) and let himself loose ... Do not picture these in costume, they are not for the most part ... perhaps a clown with a big nose, or two girls with bare necks and short skirts ... the parade of the queens of the halls (markets) is also one of the events ... Some are pretty but look awkward in their silk dresses and crowns, particularly as the broad sun displays their defects - perhaps a neck too thin or a painted face which shows ghastley white in the sunlight. #Quote by Edward Hopper
Crowns quotes by Pablo Neruda
#101. Neither the heart cut by a sliver of glass in a wasteland of thorns, nor the atrocious waters seen in the corners of certain houses, waters like eyelids and eyes, could hold your waist in my hands when my heart lifts its oak trees toward your unbreakable thread of snow. Night sugar, spirit of crowns, redeemed human blood, your kisses banish me, and a surge of water with remnants of the sea strikes the silences that wait for you surrounding the worn-out chairs, wearing doors away. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Crowns quotes by Carl Yastrzemski
#102. And if I have my choice between a pennant and a triple crown, I'll take the pennant every time. #Quote by Carl Yastrzemski
Crowns quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#103. The poorest man in his cottage may bid defiance to all the force of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storms may enter; the rain may enter - but the King of England cannot enter; all his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement! #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Crowns quotes by Paul Eldridge
#104. For having expressed an opinion, however far-fetched, we straightway become its slave, ready to die defending it, and even ready to believe it. And many continue to be martyrs to causes which have ceased to exist, their crowns rusting upon their heads as tin wreaths rust upon forgotten tombs. #Quote by Paul Eldridge
Crowns quotes by Paul Klee
#105. He neither serves nor rules, he transmits. His position is humble and the beauty at the crown is not his own. He is merely a channel. #Quote by Paul Klee
Crowns quotes by William Blake
#106. The strongest poison ever known came from Caesar's laurel crown. #Quote by William Blake
Crowns quotes by Roger McGough
#107. If the heart bleeds love, bare it,
If the martyr's crown fits, wear it. #Quote by Roger McGough
Crowns quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
#108. Possession, it is true, crowns exertion with rest; but it is only in the illusions of fancy that it has power to charm us. #Quote by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Crowns quotes by J.G. Holland
#109. Fashion is not public opinion, or the result of embodiment of public opinion. It may be that public opinion will condemn the shape of a bonnet, as it may venture to do always, and with the certainty of being right nine times in ten: but fashion will place it upon the head of every woman in America; and, were it literally a crown of thorns, she would smile contentedly beneath the imposition. #Quote by J.G.

Crowns quotes by Jalina Mhyana
#111. I can't pray or weigh my words right; doomsday
is here my friend, but you're immune. We suffer
for you. I'm weaving crowns of sonnets, dreads;
a souvenir so you'll never forget your friends. #Quote by Jalina Mhyana

Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#114. Away, you trifler! Love! I love thee not,
I care not for thee, Kate: this is no world
To play with mammets and to tilt with lips:
We must have bloody noses and cracked crowns. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crowns quotes by Terry Pratchett
#115. Things like crowns had a troublesome effect on clever folk; it was best to leave all the reigning to the kind of people whose eyebrows met in the middle when they tried to think. In a funny sort of way, they were much better at it. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Crowns quotes by Tatiana De Rosnay
#116. I will start with the tree. Because everything begins, and ends, with the tree. The tree is the tallest one. It was planted way before the others. I'm not sure how old it is, exactly. Perhaps three or four hundred years old. It is ancient and powerful. It has weathered terrible storms, braced against unbridled winds. It is not afraid.
The tree is not like the others. It has its own rhythm. Spring starts later for it, while all the others are already blossoming. Come late April, the new oval leaves sprout slowly, on the top and middle branches only. Otherwise, it looks dead. Gnarled, gray, and withered. It likes to pretend to be dead. That's how clever it is. Then, suddenly, like a huge explosion, all the buds flourish. The tree triumphs with its pale green crowns. #Quote by Tatiana De Rosnay
Crowns quotes by Francis Quarles
#117. The way to bliss lies not on beds of down, And he that had no cross deserves no crown. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Crowns quotes by Mirriam Neal
#118. Is he safe?" I whispered as soon as the baker was out of earshot.

"I very much doubt it," Hal said in a low voice.

I frowned. "You're meant to say 'yes, I'd trust him with my life.' That sort of thing. Something reassuring."

He blinked twice at me. "I beg your pardon. Next time I'll read between your very vague lines, and lie. Will that make you happy? #Quote by Mirriam Neal
Crowns quotes by George R R Martin
#119. How much can a crown be worth, when a crow can dine upon a king? #Quote by George R R Martin
Crowns quotes by Apollonius Of Tyana
#120. The gods, as they are beneficent, if they find anyone who is healthy and whole and unscarred by vice, will send him away, surely, after crowning him, not with golden crowns, but with all sorts of blessings. #Quote by Apollonius Of Tyana
Crowns quotes by Samuel Johnson
#121. The morality of an action depends on the motive from which we act. If I fling half a crown to a beggar with intention to break his head and he picks it up and buy victuals with it, the physical effect is good. But with respect to me the action is very wrong. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Crowns quotes by George R R Martin
#122. Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them. #Quote by George R R Martin
Crowns quotes by Helen Keller
#123. So imagination crowns the experience of my hands. And they learned their cunning from the wise hand of another, which, itself guided by imagination, led me safely in paths that I knew not, made darkness light before me, and made crooked ways straight. #Quote by Helen Keller
Crowns quotes by Francis Bacon
#124. A king that would not feel his crown too heavy for him, must wear it every day; but if he think it too light, he knoweth not of what metal it is made. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Crowns quotes by Eugene V. Debs
#125. From the crown of my head to the soles of my feet I am Bolshevik, and proud of it. #Quote by Eugene V. Debs

Crowns quotes by Christopher Marlowe
#127. BARABAS: As for myself, I walk abroad a-nights,
And kill sick people groaning under walls.
Sometimes I go about and poison wells;
And now and then, to cherish Christian thieves,
I am content to lose some of my crowns,
That I may, walking in my gallery,
See 'em go pinion'd along by my door.
Being young, I studied physic, and began
To practice first upon the Italian;
There I enrich'd the priests with burials,
And always kept the sexton's arms in ure
With digging graves and ringing dead men's knells.
And, after that, was I an engineer,
And in the wars 'twixt France and Germany,
Under pretence of helping Charles the Fifth,
Slew friend and enemy with my stratagems:
Then, after that, was I an usurer,
And with extorting, cozening, forfeiting,
And tricks belonging unto brokery,
I fill'd the gaols with bankrupts in a year,
And with young orphans planted hospitals;
And every moon made some or other mad,
And now and then one hang himself for grief,
Pinning upon his breast a long great scroll
How I with interest tormented him.
But mark how I am blest for plaguing them:
I have as much coin as will buy the town. #Quote by Christopher Marlowe
Crowns quotes by Paul Dermee
#128. Those letters under the door
A new life
The war at a distance
and my drinking glass that smokes
A brightness crowns the universe
("Two Poems") #Quote by Paul Dermee
Crowns quotes by Suzanne Morrison
#129. GOD. Sometimes I think there might be a god out there, and that every once in a while he tunes in to see what we're up to, and have a good laugh at how we like to dress him up in various costume. Robes, thorny crowns, yarmulkes and curls, saris and butt-hugging yoga pants. Male, female, a genderless reincarnation factory; a Mother Earth or a withholding Father Christmas. I would think it would amuse the hell out of him. That we're all idolaters, worshiping figments of our own creation who bear no resemblance to him.
Maybe he's sitting in some alternate dimension somewhere, saying, 'Shit, I didn't even create the world! I was just cooking my dinner, not paying attention to the heat, and suddenly here was this big band and a few hours later, a bunch of dinosaurs ... #Quote by Suzanne Morrison

Crowns quotes by Gloria Estefan

Crowns quotes by George Eliot

Crowns quotes by Richard Cecil
#140. When a founder has cast a bell he does not presently fix it in the steeple, but tries it with his hammer, and beats it on every side to see if there be any flaw in it. So Christ doth not presently after he hath converted a man, convey him to heaven; but suffers him first to be beaten upon by many temptations and then exalts him to his crown. #Quote by Richard Cecil
Crowns quotes by Edgar Wright
#141. I don't want to get them in trouble for crimes in the early '90s - but there was usually like one pub that was the soft touch in terms of you could get served under 18, and that pub was The Rose and Crown. #Quote by Edgar Wright
Crowns quotes by Sara Groves

Crowns quotes by Elizabeth Oakes Smith
#144. Yes, this is life; and everywhere we meet,
Not victor crowns, but wailings of defeat. #Quote by Elizabeth Oakes Smith
Crowns quotes by G.A. Aiken
#145. So I help you defeat your brother," he cut in churlishly.
"And then what are your plans?"
Annwyl frowned. "My plans?"
"Yes. Your plans. You take your brother's head, your troops are waiting. What is the next thing that you do?"
Annwyl just stared at him. He realized in that instant that the girl had no plans. None. No grand schemes of controlling the world. No plots to destroy any other empires.
Not even the plan to have a celebratory dinner.
"Annwyl, you'll be queen. You'll have to do something."
"But I don't want to be queen." Her body shook with panic, and he could hear it in her voice.
"You take his head, you'll have little choice."
"What the hell am I supposed to do as queen?"
"Well . . . you could try ruling."
"That sounds awfully complicated."
"I don't understand you."
"What do you mean?"
"You command the largest rebellion known to this land.
From what I understand, your troops are blindingly loyal to you. And other kingdoms send you reinforcements and gold."
"Your point?"
"You're already queen, Annwyl. You just need to take the crown."
She shook her head. "My father didn't believe in crowns. There's a throne, though."
"Then take your throne. Take it and become queen. #Quote by G.A. Aiken

Crowns quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#147. I affect no contempt for the high eminence he [Senator Stephen Douglas] has reached. So reached, that the oppressed of my species,might have shared with me in the elevation, I would rather stand on that eminence, than wear the richest crown that ever pressed a monarch's brow. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Crowns quotes by Dan Jones
#148. Perhaps most surprising of all, the deposed and imprisoned King Henry was not murdered. This had been the fate of the two Plantagenet kings who had lost their crowns before him: Edward II died while in custody at Berkeley Castle in 1327, while Richard II was killed at Pontefract in 1400, the year following his deposition. Ironically, Henry's survival was perhaps a mark of his uniquely pitiful and ineffectual approach to kingship - for it was much harder to justify killing a man who had done nothing evil or tyrannical, but had earned his fate thanks to his dewy-eyed simplicity. Permitting Henry to remain alive was a bold decision that Edward IV would come to regret. But in 1465 it must have struck the king as a brave and magnanimous act. #Quote by Dan Jones
Crowns quotes by Thomas Paine
#149. Let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarcy, that in America the law is King. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be King; and there ought to be no other. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Crowns quotes by Pearl Bailey

Crowns quotes by Brigham Young
#151. After men have got their exaltations and their crowns
have become Gods, even the sons of God
are made Kings of kings and Lords of lords, they have the power then of propagating their species in spirit; and that is the first of their operations with regard to organizing a world. Power is then given to them to organize the elements, and then commence the organization of tabernacles. #Quote by Brigham Young
Crowns quotes by Erica Sehyun Song
#152. I took my friend's hand as she helped me up. With our hands still linked and our flower crowns tangled in our hair, we danced, laughing with joy, through the rain and towards the school, the lightning showing us our path with its powerful light. #Quote by Erica Sehyun Song
Crowns quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#153. Of all the plants, trees have the largest surface area covered in leaves. For every square yard of forest, 27 square yards of leaves and needles blanket the crowns. Part of every rainfall is intercepted in the canopy and immediately evaporates again. In addition, each summer, trees use up to 8,500 cubic yards of water per square mile, which they release into the air through transpiration. This water vapor creates new clouds that travel farther inland to release their rain. As the cycle continues, water reaches even the most remote areas. This water pump works so well that the downpours in some large areas of the world, such as the Amazon basin, are almost as heavy thousands of miles inland as they are on the coast.

There are a few requirements for the pump to work: from the ocean to the farthest corner, there must be forest. And, most importantly, the coastal forests are the foundations for this system. If they do not exist, the system falls apart. Scientists credit Anastassia Makarieva from Saint Petersburg in Russia for the discovery of these unbelievably important connections. They studied different forests around the world and everywhere the results were the same. It didn't matter if they were studying a rain forest or the Siberian taiga, it was always the trees that were transferring life-giving moisture into land-locked interiors. Researchers also discovered that the whole process breaks down if coastal forests are cleared. It's a bit like if you were using a #Quote by Peter Wohlleben

#154. Many a crown shines spotless now that yet was deeply sullied in the winning. #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#155. RICHARD, DUKE OF GLOUCESTER:

Why then I do but dream on sovereignty,
Like one that stands upon a promontory
And spies a far-off shore where he would tread,
Wishing his foot were equal with his eye,
And chides the sea that sunders him from thence,
Saying, he'll lade it dry to have his way:
So do I wish the crown, being so far off,
And so I chide the means that keeps me from it,
And so, I say, I'll cut the causes off,
Flattering me with impossibilities,
My eye's too quick, my hear o'erweens too much,
Unless my hand and strength could equal them.
Well, say there is no kingdom then for Richard;
What other pleasure can the world afford?
I'll make my heaven in a lady's lap,
And deck my body in gay ornaments,
And witch sweet ladies with my words and looks.
O miserable thought! and more unlikely
Than to accomplish twenty golden crowns!
Why, love forswore me in my mother's womb;
And for I should not deal in her soft laws,
She did corrupt frail nature with some bribe,
To shrink mine arm up like a wither'd shrub,
To make an envious mountain on my back,
Where sits deformity to mock my body;
To shape my legs of an unequal size,
To disproportion me in every part,
Like to a chaos, or an unlick'd bear-whelp
That carries no impression like the dam.
And am I then a man to be belov'd?
O monstrous fault, to harbor such a thought!
Th #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crowns quotes by A.E. Housman
#156. When I Was One-And-Twenty

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
`Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free.'
But I was one-and-twenty
No use to talk to me.

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard him say again,
`The heart out of the bosom
Was never given in vain;
'Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue.'
And I am two-and-twenty
And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true. #Quote by A.E. Housman

#158. To be a king and wear a crown is a thing more glorious to them that see it than it is pleasant to them that bear it. #Quote by Elizabeth I
Crowns quotes by Henci Goer
#159. In a branch of medicine rife with paradoxes, contradictions, inconsistencies, and illogic, episiotomy crowns them all. The major argument for episiotomy is that it protects the perineum from injury, a protection accomplished by slicing through perineal skin, connective, tissue, and muscle. #Quote by Henci Goer
Crowns quotes by William Shakespeare
#160. Crowns in my purse I have, and goods at home,
And so am come abroad to see the world. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Crowns quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#161. As in many countries precious metals belong to the crown, so here more precious natural objects of rare beauty should belong to the public. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Crowns quotes by John Foxe
#162. When the Christians, upon these occasions, received martyrdom, they were ornamented, and crowned with garlands of flowers; for which they, in heaven, received eternal crowns of glory. #Quote by John Foxe
Crowns quotes by George R R Martin
#163. Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come. #Quote by George R R Martin
Crowns quotes by Tessa Dare
#164. You're Piers Brandon, the Marquess of Granville, diplomat and secret agent in the Crown's service." She ran a fingertip down the noble slope of his nose. "And I'm Char - "
Her words were lost in a gasp.

With the speed and strength of a whip, he had her turned on her back, sprawled beneath him on the tufted carriage seat.
"You will be Lady Charlotte Brandon, the Marchioness of Granville, diplomat's wife and mother of my heir."
.......
"You'll be mine," he murmured. "I swear it, Charlotte. I will make you mine. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Crowns quotes by Ignatius Of Antioch
#165. Take care, then, to be firmly grounded in the teachings of the Lord and his apostles so that you may prosper in all your doings both in body and in soul, in faith and in love, in the Son, and in the Father and in the Spirit, in the beginning and in the end, along with your most worthy bishop and his spiritual crown, your presbyters, and with the deacons, who are men of God. #Quote by Ignatius Of Antioch
Crowns quotes by Queen Latifah
#166. Putting on your crown is really like accepting the fact that you are a queen. You're a great woman. Wherever you are in life, just keep on that path, and so for me, sometimes as women, we forget - we forget that about ourselves. So, putting on your crown is sort of reminding yourself that, hey, I'm a queen, and I can do what I want in this life and take it. #Quote by Queen Latifah
Crowns quotes by Herbert Kaufman
#167. Makers of empire, they have fought for bigger things than crowns and higher seats than thrones. #Quote by Herbert Kaufman
Crowns quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#168. You cannot be Christ's servant if you are not willing to follow him, cross and all. What do you crave? A crown? Then it must be a crown of thorns if you are to be like him. Do you want to be lifted up? So you shall, but it will be upon a cross. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Crowns quotes by George R R Martin
#169. A crown should not sit easy on the head. #Quote by George R R Martin
Crowns quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#170. Luther was guilty of two great crimes - he struck the Pope in his crown, and the monks in their belly. #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus
Crowns quotes by George Santayana
#171. Christianity persecuted, tortured, and burned. Like a hound it tracked the very scent of heresy. It kindled wars, and nursed furious hatreds and ambitions. It sanctified, quite like Mohammedism, extermination and tyranny. All this would have been impossible if, like Buddhism, it had looked only for peace and the liberation of souls. It looked beyond; it dreamt of infinite blisses and crowns it should be crowned with before an electrified universe and an applauding God ... Buddhism had tried to quiet a sick world with anesthetics; Christianity sought to purge it with fire. #Quote by George Santayana
Crowns quotes by Mary Shelley
#172. What can stop the determined heart and resolved will of man? #Quote by Mary Shelley
Crowns quotes by Thomas Hartwell Horne
#173. The riches of heaven, the honor which cometh from God only, and the pleasures at His right hand, the absence of all evil, the presence and enjoyment of all good, and this good enduring to eternity, never more to be taken from us, never more to be in any, the least degree, diminished, but forever increasing, these are the wreaths which form the contexture of that crown held forth to our hopes. #Quote by Thomas Hartwell Horne
Crowns quotes by Giuseppe Garibaldi
#174. Posterity will call you the great emancipator, a more enviable title than any crown could be, and greater than any merely mundane treasure. #Quote by Giuseppe Garibaldi
Crowns quotes by Richard Wagner
#175. What Music expresses is eternal, infinite, and ideal; she expresses not the passion, love, desire, of this or that individual in this or that condition, but Passion, Love, Desire itself, and in such infinitely varied phases as lie in her unique possession and are foreign and unknown to any other tongue ... So ... Here's to Victory, gained by our higher sense over the worthlessness of the vulgar! To Love, which crowns our courage ... To the day, to the night! ... And three cheers for Music ... #Quote by Richard Wagner

Crowns quotes by Katherine Paterson
#177. What is man - and of course the writer means all of us puny little insignificant creatures - what is a mere human being that God who made the immense universe should ever notice?' She chuckled. 'The sky does take you down to size.'
Not even big as bugs. Not even a speck of dust to the nearest star,' Angel agreed.
But the psalmist answers his own question. "Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor ... " '
What?' Angel asked, not sure she had heard right.
A little lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor.'
The real angels? Do you believe that?'
Yes, Angel, I do. When people look down on me, and these days' - she laughed shortly - 'these days everyone over the age of five does. When people look down on me, I remember that God looks at this pitiful, twisted old thing that I have become and crowns me with glory. #Quote by Katherine Paterson

Crowns quotes by Paul Klee
#180. From the root, the sap rises up into the artist, flows through him, flows to his eye. Overwhelmed and activated by the force of the current, he conveys his vision into his work. And yet, standing at his appointed place as the trunk of the tree, he does nothing other than gather and pass on what rises from the depths. He neither serves nor commands he transmits. His position is humble. And the beauty at the crown is not his own; it has merely passed through him. #Quote by Paul Klee
Crowns quotes by John Of Damascus
#181. The saints must be honored as friends of Christ and children and heirs of God. Let us carefully observe the manner of life of all the apostles, martyrs, ascetics, and just men who announced the coming of the Lord. And let us emulate their faith, charity, hope, zeal, life, patience under suffering, and perseverance unto death so that we may also share their crowns of glory. #Quote by John Of Damascus
Crowns quotes by George R.R. Martin
#182. 1. Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.
2. The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.
3. A wise man does not make demands of kings.
4. A mind needs a book as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep it's edge.

8. In the world as I have seen it, no man grows rich by kindness.
9. If a man paints a target on his chest, he should expect that sooner or later someone will loose an arrow on him.
10. Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them.

#183. History favors the underfoot and the oppressed, Your Majest," he says. "The years are long, but eventually, always, fortunes shift. The people rise. Such is the way of things. Either let change come willingly, help it along, or face the wrath of such force. It might not be you, or even your children. But the day will come when Reds storm the gates of your castles, break your crowns, and slit the throats of your descendants as they beg for the mercy you will not show now. #Quote by Victoria Aveyard

Crowns quotes by Angie Thomas
#185. The Garden passes by my window. Older folks water their flowers or bring out their trash cans. A couple of cars blast music on high. Seems normal, but things haven't been the same since the riots. The neighborhood doesn't feel nearly as safe. Not that the Garden was ever a utopia, hell no, but before I only worried about GDs and Crowns. Now I gotta worry about the cops too? #Quote by Angie Thomas

Crowns quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#188. When the supreme magistrate will not execute the judgment of the Lord, those who made him supreme magistrate, under God, who have under God, sovereighn liberty to dispose of crowns and kingdoms, are to execute the judgment of the Lord, when wicked men make the law of God of none effect. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Crowns quotes by Jeff Wheeler
#189. Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things, which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little. Many tyrants have sat on a throne, and those whom no man would think on, have worn crowns. #Quote by Jeff Wheeler

#191. Who ever comes to shroud me, do not harm Nor question much That subtle wreath of hair, which crowns my arm; The mystery, the sign you must not touch, For 'tis my outward soul, Viceroy to that, which then to heaven being gone, Will leave this to control, And keep these limbs, her provinces, from dissolution. #Quote by John Donne

He loaded shells in a shotgun and snapped it shut, then searched for a place to strap it on that didn't interfere with the flamethrower. "No queens, no kings, no emperors. Not in America. Only CEOs. Same thing, but not so many crowns. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Crowns quotes by Catherine The Great
#195. The title of Queen rang sweet to my ears, child though I was ... This idea of a crown began running in my head then like a tune, and has been running a lot in it ever since. #Quote by Catherine The Great
Crowns quotes by Janet Morris
#196. Only from chaos does order come. The angry Fates bring death where they will, when war is king, says Enlil, storm god of the armies, and the tip of his crown rends the clouds above their heads. "Wheresoever I rule, death comes shambling after. So it has always been, is, and will be." #Quote by Janet Morris
Crowns quotes by Holly Golightly
#197. I draw the art for the writers. A lil' chibi of each author crowns their articles. #Quote by Holly Golightly
Crowns quotes by Joseph Addison
#198. 'Tis Liberty that crowns Britannia's isle, and makes her barren rocks and her bleak mountains smile ... 'Tis Britain's care to watch o'er Europe's fate, and hold in balance each contending state, To threaten bold presumptuous kings with war, and answer her afflicted neighbours' prayer ... Soon as her fleets appear their terrors cease. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Crowns quotes by Hermann Hesse
#199. I am a star in the firmament
that observe the world, despises the world
and consumed in its heat.
I am the sea by night in a storm
the sea shouting that accumulates new sins
and to the ancient makes recompense.
I am exiled from your world
of pride polite, by pride defrauded,
I am the king without crown.
I am the passion without words
without stones of the hearth, without weapons in the war,
is my same force that make me sick #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Crowns quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#200. Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you weren't chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
