  Multiply in swarms, like vermin.
            —Victor Hugo

Their forms and features multiplied,
As the reflection of a light
Between two burnished mirrors gleams,
Or lamps upon a bridge at night
Stretch on and on before the sight,
Till the long vista endless seems.
            —Henry W. Longfellow

  Multiply in seed like Abraham.
            —François Rabelais

  Multiplied like grasshoppers upon the face of the land.
            —François Rabelais

  Multiply as the bud of the field.
            —Old Testament
  5
  Multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven.
            —Old Testament
