Quotes about Beds

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies.

Christopher Marlowe

A gulf profound as that Serbonian bog
Betwixt Damiata and Mount Casius old,
Where armies whole have sunk: the parching air
Burns frore, and cold performs th' effect of fire.
Thither by harpy-footed Furies hal'd,
At certain revolutions all the damn'd
Are brought, and feel by turns the bitter change
Of fierce extremes,--extremes by change more fierce;
From beds of raging fire to starve in ice
Their soft ethereal warmth, and there to pine
Immovable, infix'd, and frozen round,
Periods of time; thence hurried back to fire.

John Milton

And what its worth, ask death-beds; they can tell.

Edward Young

Through the laburnum's dropping gold
Rose the light shaft of Orient mould,
And Europe's violets, faintly sweet,
Purpled the mossbeds at its feet.

Felicia Dorothea (Browne) Hemans

The sons, after his death, took their spades and mattocks and carefully dug over every portion of their land. They found no treasure, but the vines repaid their labor by an extraordinary and superabundant crop.


Two babies were born on the same day at the same hospital. They lay there and looked at each other. Their familiescame and took them away.

Bedside manners are no substitute for the right diagnosis.

Alfred P. Sloan, Jr.

Aye. Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live. At least awhile... And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance— just one chance—to come back here and tell our enemies that they make take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!!
