If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.
Surely, God could have caused birds to Fly with their bones made of solid gold, with their veins full of quicksilver, with their flesh heavier than lead, and with their wings exceedingly small. He did not, and that ought to show something. It is only in order to shield your ignorance that you put the Lord at every turn to the refuge of a miracle.Galileo Galilei
Know then, unnumber'd Spirits round thee Fly, The light Militia of the lower sky.Alexander Pope, Rape of the Lock. I. 41.
O war! thou son of hell, Whom angry heavens do make their minister, Throw in the frozen bosoms of our part Hot coals of vengeance! Let no soldier Fly. He that is truly dedicate to war Hath no self-love, nor he that loves himself, Hath not essentially but by circumstance The name of valour.Act V, scene 2, line 33.
Too many tongues have gates which Fly apart Too easily, and care for many things That don’t concern them.Lines 421-423, as translated by Dorothea Wender
I knew, as everyone knows, that the easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place some one is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death. That's what attracts us to the man who paints the flagstaff on the tall building, or to the 'human Fly' who scales the walls of the same building.harry houdini
Go, little letter, apace, apace, Fly; Fly to the light in the valley below Tell my wish to her dewy blue eye.Alfred Tennyson, The Letter, Stanza 2.
Fly away, pretty moth, to the shade Of the leaf where you slumbered all day; Be content with the moon and the stars, pretty moth, And make use of your wings while you may. * * * * * * But tho' dreams of delight may have dazzled you quite, They at last found it dangerous play; Many things in this world that look bright, pretty moth, Only dazzle to lead us astray.thomas haynes bayly
Our rockets can find Halley's comet, and Fly to Venus with amazing accuracy, but side by side with these scientific and technical triumphs is an obvious lack of efficiency in using scientific achievements for economic needs, and many Soviet household appliances are of poor quality.mikhail gorbachev
There is no evil which we cannot face or Fly from but the consciousness of duty disregarded.Daniel Webster, p. 157. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
