In the world's audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight.
There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall.cyril connolly
I feel like one who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, And all but he departed.thomas moore
Where in venerable rows Widely waving oaks enclose The moat of yonder antique hall, Swarm the rooks with clamorous call; And, to the toils of nature true, Wreath their capacious nests anew.thomas warton
As always, Canada will now bury its war dead, just as the rest of the world, as always, will forget its sacrifice, just as it always forgets nearly everything Canada ever does. It seems that Canada's historic mission is to come to the selfless aid both of its friends and of complete strangers, and then, once the crisis is over, to be well and truly ignored. Canada is the perpetual wallflower that stands on the edge of the hall, waiting for someone to come and ask her for a dance.
You are invited to come to see the Earth turn, tomorrow, from three to five, at Meridian hall of the Paris Observatory.léon foucault
Her cabined ample Spirit, It fluttered and failed for breath. Tonight it doth inherit The vasty hall of death.Matthew Arnold
And dar'st thou then To beard the lion in his den, The Douglas in his hall?
The way to go to the circus, however, is with someone who has seen perhaps one theatrical performance before in his life and that in the High School hall. ... The scales of sophistication are struck from your eyes and you see in the circus a gathering of men and women who are able to do things as a matter of course which you couldn’t do if your life depended on it.robert benchley
And dar'st thou thenTo beard the lion in his den,The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
How some men creep in skittish Fortune's hall, While others play the idiots in her eyes!william shakespeare
Somewhat back from the village street Stands the old-fashion'd country seat, Across its antique portico Tall poplar-trees their shadows throw; And from its station in the hall An ancient time-piece says to all, "Forever! never! Never forever!"Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Its streets are narrow, to protect from the direct rays of the sun; it had at one time been defended by walls, but they are now in a dilapidated state. I was struck by the fine appearance of the cathedral and theatre, which had in early times been the hall, where the baronial councils of the Normans, who occupied this part of Italy, were held.Craufurd Tait Ramage
Stately and tall he moves in the hall, The chief of a thousand for grace.
My philosophy of life is that the meek shall inherit nothing but debasement, frustration and ignoble deaths; that there is security in personal strength; that you can fight City hall and win; that any action is better than no action, even if it's the wrong action; that you never reach glory or self-fulfillment unless you're willing to risk everything, dare anything, put yourself dead on the line every time; and that once one becomes strong or rich or potent or powerful it is the responsibility of the strong to help the weak become strong.harlan ellison
Twenty-eight years ago, I created my first game on an Apple II in my bedroom closet at a time when the interactive entertainment industry was taking its first baby steps. Today the games business has grown to a multi-billion dollar industry and we are just at the tip of the iceberg. I'm thrilled to have been a part of this successful journey and I'm extremely honored by the Academy's hall of Fame induction.richard garriott
I think my chances of getting into the Rock 'N' Roll hall Of Fame are about as good as Milli Vanilli's."weird al" yankovic
These ceremonies and the National Statuary hall will teach the youth of the land in succeeding generations as they come and go that the chief end of human effort in a sublunary view should be usefulness to mankind, and that all true fame which should be perpetuated by public pictures, statues, and monuments, is to be acquired only by noble deeds and high achievements and the establishment of a character founded upon the principles of truth, uprightness, and inflexible integrity.
Common sense still lingers in Westminster hall.
For the Judges of the Court I feel the most sincere respect, esteem and affection. Never have there presided in Westminster hall magistrates more devotedly anxious to perform in a satisfactory manner the duties of their high office.
If it were a doubtful point how the statute should be construed, I must consider myself as bound by the construction it has already received in two Courts in Westminster hall
