Stones
 
I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
        St. Luke, Chap. xix. Ver. 40.

I hold it truth with him who sings
  To one clear harp in divers tones,
  That men may rise on stepping-stones
Of their dead selves to higher things.
        Tennyson.—In Memoriam, I. Verse 1.
  2
For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it.
        Habakkuk, Chap. ii. Ver. 11.
  3
What, worst of villains! for thou on thy part wouldst enrage the temper even of a stone.
        Buckley’s Sophocles.—(Œdipus Tyr., Page 13.)
  4
        But were I Brutus,
And Brutus Antony, there were an Antony
Would ruffle up your spirits, and put a tongue
In every wound of Cæsar, that should move
The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny.
        Shakespeare.—Julius Cæsar, Act III. Scene 2. (Antony to the Citizens.)
