You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will,But the scent of the roses will hang round it still.
All moanday, tearsday, wailsday, thumpsday, frightday, shatterday till the fear of the Law.James Augustine Aloysius Joyce
Yet once more,O ye laurels, and once more Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never-sere I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude, And with forc'd fingers rude, Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year. Bitter constraint, and sad occasion dear, Compels me to disturb your season due For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime Young Lycidas, and hath not left his peer.john milton
The treatment for jaded sensibilities is not to Shatter them, after all.Germaine Greer
Oaks shall be rent; the Word shall Shatter —Yea, on that fiery day, the Crown,Even the palace walls shall totter,And domes and spires come crashing down.Heinrich Heine
Should feel happy, should feel gladI'm alive and it can't be badBut back on planet Earth they Shatter the illusionThe world's going 'round in a state of confusion
Although we weren't able to Shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it.hillary clinton
Should feel happy, should feel glad I'm alive and it can't be bad But back on planet Earth they Shatter the illusion The world's going 'round in a state of confusion
Long, long be my heart with such memories fill'd! Like the vase, in which roses have once been distill'd You may break, you may Shatter the vase if you will, But the scent of the roses will hang round it still.thomas moore
Thus says Yahweh to his anointed, to Cyrus, whom he has taken by his right hand to subdue nations before him and strip the loins of kings, to force gateways before him that their gates be closed no more: I will go before you levelling the heights. I will Shatter the bronze gateways, smash the iron bars. I will give you the hidden treasures, the secret hoards, that you may know that I am Yahweh.
I've dropped a few of those glass balls in my day. Sometimes they chip, sometimes they Shatter to pieces.”
