By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune Now my dear lady hath mine enemies Brought to this shore; and by my prescience I find my zenith doth depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop.
Some wonder why I have such a feeling of concern over the imposition of the death penalty. I ask those who wonder how would you feel if you defended a man charged with murder, who was as innocent as any hon. member in this House at this very moment, who was convicted; whose appeal was dismissed, who was executed; and six months later the star witness for the Crown admitted that he, himself, had committed the murder and blamed it on the accused? That experience will never be effaced from my memory.john diefenbaker
The desire of the moth for the star, of the night for the morrow. The devotion to something afar from the sphere of our sorrow.Percy Bysshe Shelley
It was natural that the direct wielders of the royal prerogative, men who sat in the star Chamber and the Privy Council, who knew the secrets of the State and the necessity for prompt action, should despise the merely declaratory character of a good deal of Common Law process. To them we doubtless owe those four great pillars of Chancery jurisdiction, the injunction, the decree, the sequestration, and the commission of rebellion.edward jenks
The angels all were singing out of tune, And hoarse with having little else to do, Excepting to wind up the sun and moon, Or curb a runaway young star or two.Rochdale
Scientologists are at war with a member of their own family - the outspoken niece of the church's powerful leader, David Miscavige. Jenna Hill Miscavige, 24, the daughter of David's older brother Ron, recently came out in support of Andrew Morton's "Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography," and slammed the star for "supporting a religion that tears apart families, both in the media and monetarily." Since then, Jenna claims she's been subjected to harassment.david miscavige
A star for every State, and a State for every star.robert charles winthrop
The sovereign brilliancy of Sirius pierced the eye with a steely glitter, the star called Capella was yellow, Aldebaran and Betelgueux shone with a fiery red. To persons standing alone on a hill during a clear midnight such as this, the roll of the world eastward is almost a palpable movement.thomas hardy
Man is his own star, and the soul that can Render an honest and a perfect man, Commands all light.John Fletcher
I must stop to lament, that we cannot evince an admiring gratitude towards other excellent things by a like readiness of quotation: that we cannot, for instance, quote a star that we have been watching; or a hue of sunset; or a friend's voice, and his shake of the hand (I had almost said heart); or a beautiful picture...samuel laman blanchard
The moving moon went up the sky, and nowhere did abide. Softly she was going up, and a star or two beside.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
He that strives to touch a star, oft stumbles at a straw.Edmund Spenser
Lovelyare the curves of the white owl sweeping Wavy in the dusk lit by one large star. Lone on the fir-branch, his rattle-note unvaried, Brooding o'er the gloom, spins the brown eve-jar.George Meredith
Stand still, you floods, do not defaceThat image which you bear:So votaries, from every place,To you shall altars rear.No winds but lovers' sighs blow here,To trouble these glad streams,On which no star from any sphereDid ever dart such beams.thomas carew
Eat, speak, and move, under the influence of the most received star; and though the devil lead the measure such are to be followed.william shakespeare
If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.robert h. jackson
The twilight hours, like birds flew by, as lightly and as free. Ten thousand stars were in the sky, ten thousand on the sea. For every wave with dimpled face that leap'd upon the air, had caught a star in its embrace and held it trembling there.
Eyes of some men travel far For the finding of a star; Up and down the heavens they go, Men that keep a mighty rout! I'm as great as they, I trow, Since the day I found thee out, Little Flower! I'll make a stir, Like a sage astronomer.william wordsworth
Outside intelligences, exploring the Solar System with true impartiality, would be quite likely to enter the Sun in their records thus: star X, spectral class G0, 4 planets plus debris.Isaac Asimov
