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
If a British guy saw someone at the wheel of a Rolls- Royce, he'd say 'come the revolution and we'll take that away from you, mate', where the American would say 'one day I'll have one of those, when I have worked hard enough'. It's unfortunate we Australians inherited the British mentality.Kerry Packer
Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.
Bowling is everlasting because it does not have a point. In this way, the Dude: Makes his point at the end and finds he made it at the beginning; Rolls casually down the lane, and endures through strikes and gutters. Because he does not put himself over the line, he does not enter a world of pain.
Standing on a beach somewhere
Looking for something to see
As the beach Rolls in, I swear
It's bringing something to me
Restless, he Rolls about from whore to whore, A merry Monarch, scandalous and poor.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
God is everywhere present by His power. He Rolls the orbs of heaven with His hand; He fixes the earth with His foot; He guides all creatures with His eye, and refreshes them with His influence; He makes the powers of hell to shake with His terrors, and binds the devils with His word.jeremy taylor
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
Instead of indulging in jealousy, greed, in relishing themselves, there are men who keep their hearts alert to the stillness in which time Rolls on and leaves us behind. … those who are open to the wonder will not miss it. Faith is found in solicitude for faith, in an inner care for the wonder that is everywhere.abraham joshua heschel
Secure web servers are the equivalent of heavy armored cars. The problem is, they are being used to transfer Rolls of coins and checks written in crayon by people on park benches to merchants doing business in cardboard boxes from beneath highway bridges. Further, the roads are subject to random detours, anyone with a screwdriver can control the traffic lights, and there are no police.gene spafford
The world Rolls round for ever like a mill; It grinds out death and life and good and ill; It has no purpose, heart or mind or will.james thomson
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!
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.
"You will not find him dead easily. If he has been tipped out of the car, we shall find him rolling as a colt Rolls in a field, kicking his legs for fun ." "Clashing his hoofs," said the Professor. "The colts do, and so did Pan ." "Pan again!" said Dr. Bull irritably. "You seem to think Pan is everything ." "So he is," said the Professor, "in Greek. He means everything." "Don't forget," said the Secretary, looking down, "that he also means Panic ."
Out of the shadows of night, The world Rolls into light; It is daybreak everywhere.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
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.
