Heaven's ebon vault, Studded with stars unutterably bright, Through which the moon's unclouded grandeur rolls, Seems like a canopy which love has spread To curtain her sleeping world.
The rolling stone Rolls echoing from rock to rock; but the rolling stone is dead. The moss is silent because the moss is alive.gilbert keith chesterton
"Aye, aye! It was that accursed white whale that razeed me; made a poor pegging lubber of me for ever and a day!" Then tossing both arms, with measureless imprecations he shouted out: "Aye, aye! and I'll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give him up. And this is what ye have shipped for, men! to chase that white whale on both sides of land, and over all sides of earth, till he spouts black blood and Rolls fin out."Herman Melville
Restless, he Rolls about from whore to whore, A merry Monarch, scandalous and poor.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
Slang is a language that Rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands and goes to work.Carl Sandburg
Time Rolls his ceaseless course.
Like a stone That Rolls down a hill, I have come to this day.Ishikawa Takuboku
The Divine government of the world is like a stream that Rolls under us; men are only as bubbles that rise on its surface; some are brighter and larger, and sparkle longer in the sun than others; but all must break; whilst the mighty current Rolls on in its wonted majesty!thomas david
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded Everybody Rolls with their fingers crossed Everybody knows that the war is over Everybody knows the good guys lost Everybody knows the fight was fixed The poor stay poor, the rich get rich That's how it goes Everybody knows.leonard cohen
We know all those facts about Florida and what Katherine Harris did, and the private firm that took African-Americans off the voting Rolls and prohibited them from voting. But I've been surprised in this first week how many average Americans were not aware of all of the trickery and deceit that took place in the year before the election to fix it for George W. Bush.Michael Moore
This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth Rolls.john muir
Each state of the human mind has some parable in the physical creation by which it is shadowed forth; nor is it only artists and poets, but even the most abstract thinkers that have drawn from this source. Lively activity we name fire; time is a stream that Rolls on, sweeping all before it; eternity is a circle; a mystery is hid in midnight gloom, and truth dwells in the sun. Nay, I begin to believe that even the future destiny of the human race is prefigured in the dark oracular utterances of bodily creation.friedrich von schiller
And ne'er shall the sons of Columbia be slaves, While the earth bears a plant, or the sea Rolls its waves.
But sure the eye of time beholds no name, So blest as thine in all the Rolls of fame.
Our Mountains are cover'd with Imperial Oak Whose Roots, like our liberties, ages have nourished But long e're our Nation submits to the Yoke Not a Tree shall be left on the Field where it Flourished Should Invasion impend, every Tree would defend From the Hill tops they shaded, our Shores to defend For ne'er shall the Sons of Columbia be Slaves While the Earth bears a Plant, or the Sea Rolls its Waves.
Be patient, my friends; time Rolls rapidly away; our longing has its end. The hour will strike, who knows how soon? when the maternal lap of everlasting Love shall be opened to us, and the full peace of God breathe around us from the palmy summits of Eden.
At first, heard solemn o'er the verge of Heaven, The Tempest growls; but as it nearer comes, And Rolls its awful burden on the wind, The Lightnings flash a larger curve, and more The Noise astounds; till overhead a sheet Of livid flame discloses wide, then shuts, And opens wider; shuts and opens still Expansive, wrapping ether in a blaze. Follows the loosen'd aggravated Roar, Enlarging, deepening, mingling, peal on peal, Crush'd, horrible, convulsing Heaven and Earth.james thomson
And nobler is a limited command, Given by the love of all your native land, Than a successive title, long and dark, Drawn from the mouldy Rolls of Noah's Ark.john dryden
Those graceful groves that shade the plain, Where Tiber Rolls majestic to the main, And flattens, as he runs, the fair campagne.
