O columbine, open your folded wrapper, Where two twin turtle-doves dwell! O cuckoopint, toll me the purple clapper That hangs in your clear green bell!
Blue! Gentle cousin of the forest-green, Married to green in all the sweetest flowers Forget-me-not, the blue bell, and, that queen Of secrecy, the violet: what strange powers Hast thou, as a mere shadow! But how great, When in an Eye thou art alive with fate!john keats
Think of it: the lowest common denominator in being digital is not your operating system, modem, or model of computer. It's a tiny piece of plastic, designed decades ago by bell Labs' Charles Krumreich, Edwin Hardesty, and company, who thought they were making an inconspicuous plug for a few telephone handsets. Not in their wildest dreams was Registered Jack 11 — a modular connector more commonly known as the RJ-11 — meant to be plugged and unplugged so many times, by so many people, for so many reasons, all over the world.nicholas negroponte
Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved inmankind; and thereforenever send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.john donne
Time and the bell have buried the day, The black cloud carries the sun away.
The tolling bell Measures time not our time, rung by the unhurried Ground swell, a time Older than the time of chronometers.
Rose of all Roses,Rose of all the World! The tall thought-woven sails, that flap unfurled Above the tide of hours, trouble the air, And God's bell buoyed to be the water's care.
When a nation’s young men are conservative, its funeral bell is already rung.henry ward beecher
Caution and conservatism are expected of old age; but when the young men of a nation are possessed of such a spirit, when they are afraid of the noise and strife caused by the new applications of the truth, Heaven save the land! Its funeral bell has already rung.henry ward beecher
How oft in schoolboy-days, from the school's swayHave I run forth to Nature as to a friend, —With some pretext of o'erwrought sight, to spendMy school-time in green meadows far away!Careless of summoning bell, or clocks that strike,I marked with flowers the minutes of my day.frederick goddard tuckerman
The woods were made for the hunter of dreams,The brooks for the fishers of song;To the hunters who hunt for the gunless gameThe streams and the woods belong.There are thoughts that moan from the soul of pineAnd thoughts in a flower bell curled;And the thoughts that are blown with scent of the fernAre as new and as old as the world.sam walter foss
Each matin bell, the Baron saith, Knells us back to a world of death.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream.Sylvia Plath
The psychical condition of men’s minds may be compared with a set of bells close together, and so arranged that in the ordinary man a bell rings only when one beside it sounds, and the vibration lasts only a moment. In the genius, when a bell sounds it vibrates so strongly that it sets in action the whole series, and remains in action throughout life. The latter kind of movement often gives rise to extraordinary conditions and absurd impulses, that may last for weeks together and that form the basis of the supposed kinship of genius with insanity.otto weininger
Dark eyes are dearer far Than those that mock the hyacinthine bell.
He hath a heart as sound as a bell and his tongue is the clapper, for what his heart thinks his tongue speaks.william shakespeare
The play is done; the curtain drops, Slow falling to the prompter's bell: A moment yet the actor stops, And looks around, to say farewell. It is an irksome word and task: And, when he's laughed and said his say, He shows, as he removes the mask, A face that's anything but gay.william makepeace thackeray
It is hard to explain to people now how hard it was being a punk back then [the 1970s]. If you had short hair, didn't wear bell bottoms and walked down the street, chances are some asshole in an El Camino was going to kick your ass.
Where the bee sucks, there suck I; In a cowslip's bell I lie; There I couch when owls do cry. On the bat's back I do fly.william shakespeare
Till taught by pain, Men really know not what good water's worth; If you had been in Turkey or in Spain, Or with a famish'd boat's-crew had your berth, Or in the desert heard the camel's bell, You'd wish yourself where Truth is in a well.lord byron
The church-going bell.
The vesper bell from far That seems to mourn for the expiring day.dante alighieri
He heard the convent bell, Suddenly in the silence ringing For the service of noonday.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It cometh into court and pleads the cause Of creatures dumb and unknown to the laws; And this shall make, in every Christian clime, The bell of Atri famous for all time.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There were many at bell Labs and MIT who compared Shannon's insight to Einstein's. Others found that comparison unfair - unfair to Shannon.william poundstone
bell, thou soundest merrily, When the bridal party To the church doth hie! bell, thou soundest solemnly, When, on Sabbath morning, Fields deserted lie!
