Jewels
 
  I’ll give my jewels for a set of beads.
Shakespeare.    
  1
        Full many a gem of purest ray serene
  The dark unfathom’d caves of ocean bear.
Gray.    
  2
        If that a pearl may in a toad’s head dwell,
And may be found too in an oyster shell.
Bunyan.    
  3
        These gems have life in them: their colors speak,
Say what words fail of.
George Eliot.    
  4
                        Jewels five-words-long,
That on the stretch’d forefinger of all Time
Sparkle for ever.
Tennyson.    
  5
  There is many a rich stone laid up in the bowels of the earth, many a fair pearl laid up in the bosom of the sea, that never was seen nor never shall be.
Bishop Hall.    
  6
        The lively Diamond drinks thy purest rays,
Collected light, compact.
Thomson.    
  7
        Some ask’d how pearls did grow, and where,
  Then, spoke I to my girle,
To part her lips, and showed them there
  The quarrelets of pearl.
Herrick.    
  8
