She came to the village church, And sat by a pillar alone; An angel watching an urn Wept over her, carved in Stone.Tennyson
Taking courage and looking forward from the standpoint of higher ideas born of the multiplication of the arts, they gave up huts and began to build houses with foundations, having brick or Stone walls, and roofs of timber and tiles; next, observation and application led them from fluctuating and indefinite conceptions to definite rules of symmetry. Perceiving that nature had been lavish in the bestowal of timber and bountiful in stores of building material, they... embellished them with luxuries.vitruvius

As creeping ivy clings to wood or Stone, And hides the ruin that it feeds upon, So sophistry, cleaves close to, and protects Sin's rotten trunk, concealing its defects.william cowper
How scientists go about their job: and it's a process, it's a question of asking questions, respecting observation, respecting experiment, having tentative explanations and then testing them.... There is a problem sometimes with how we teach science at schools. Because we sometimes teach it as if it has been chiseled in Stone.paul nurse
History shows that whenever an emergency arises, our national spirit is most emphatically manifested to advance the prestige and fortune of the nation. It is incumbent upon us to leave no Stone unturned in order to promote loyalty and bravery on the home front as well, and to replenish and demonstrate our nation's powers, for which are required the inculcation of the spirit of reverence for deities and respect for ancestors, the renovation of national education and the of the people's physical strength.mitsumasa yonai
Yet the stones remain less real to those who cannot name them, or read the mute syllables graven in silica. To see a red Stone is less than seeing it as jasper – metamorphic quartz, cousin to the flint the Kiowa carved as arrowheads. To name is to know and remember. Sin embargo, las piedras se vuelven menos reales Para quienes no pueden nombrarlas ni leer Las mudas sílabas sepultadas en el sílice. Ver una piedra roja es menos que verla como jaspe, Metamórfico cuarzo, pariente del pedernal que los kiowa Tallaron como puntas de sus flechas. Nombrar es conocer y recordar.dana gioia
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious Stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

Will they ever forgive me for writing Roughing It? They know that it was thetruth, but have I not been a mark for every vulgar editor of a village journal, throughout the length and breadth of the land to hurl a Stone at, and point out as the enemy to Canada.Susanna ne e Strickland Moodie
There may be some tenderness in the conscience and yet the will be a very Stone; and as long as the will stands out, there is no broken heart.richard alleine
A painting or sculpture not modelled on any real object is every bit as concrete and sensuous as a leaf or a Stone.. ..(but) it is an incomplete art which privileges the intellect to the detriment of the senses... (art must be like..) fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant or a child in it’s mother’s womb. (circa 1930)hans arp
No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and Stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.shirley jackson
On John Edwards, U.S. Senator from North Carolina: "The stump speech of pretty-boy Senator John Edwards, which I've heard often enough to be able to mouth along with him, has room for everything, including vivid, wrenching portraits of despair: 'Tonight somewhere in America a ten-year-old little girl will go to bed hungry, hoping and praying that tomorrow will not be as cold as today because she doesn't have the coat to keep her warm.' You'd have to have a heart of Stone not to be doubled up in laughter at that line.mark steyn
Chorus: [We] must look beneath every Stone, lest it conceal some orator ready to sting us. (tr. O'Neill 1938, Perseus ) Chorus: Under every Stone lurks a politician. (tr. in Bartlett 1968, p. 91 or Archive.org)Aristophanes
Alas! A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections a mere heart of Stone.charles darwin
The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The Stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane flieshan shan
Instead of the poems I had hoped for, there came only a shuddering blackness and ineffable loneliness; and I saw at last a fearful truth which no one had ever dared to breathe before the unwhisperable secret of secrets The fact that this city of Stone and stridor is not a sentient perpetuation of Old New York as London is of Old London and Paris of Old Paris, but that it is in fact quite dead, its sprawling body imperfectly embalmed and infested with queer animate things which have nothing to do with it as it was in life.h. p. lovecraft
As on the smooth expanse of crystal lakes The sinking Stone at first a circle makes; The trembling surface by the motion stirr'd, Spreads in a second circle, then a third; Wide, and more wide, the floating rings advance, Fill all the watery plain, and to the margin dance.Alexander Pope
Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner Stone , elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded .
Life is mostly froth and bubble; :;:; Two things stand like Stone, Kindness in another's trouble, :;:; Courage in your own.
There is many a rich Stone laid up in the bowels of the earth, many a fair pearl laid up in the bosom of the sea, that never was seen, nor ever shall be.joseph hall
In the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a Stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid-winter Long ago.christina rossetti
