And as I played, a child came thro' the gate,A boy who looked at me without a word,As tho' he saw stretch far behind my headLong lines of radiant angels, row on row.That day we spoke a little, timidly,And after that I never heard the voiceThat sang so many songs for love of me.
Matilda told such Dreadful Lies, It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes; Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth, Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth, Attempted to Believe Matilda: The effort very nearly killed her.hilaire belloc
And tulips, children love to Stretch Their fingers down, to feel in each Its beauty's secret nearer.Elizabeth Browning
[T]he rare earth elements perplex us in our researches, baffle us in our speculations, and haunt us in our very dreams. They Stretch like an unknown sea before us mocking, mystifying and murmuring strange revelations and possibilities.william crookes
The key to this collaboration - which we undertook after much deliberation - was to Stretch creatively. New characters, new locales, new form (the novella).
A fanciful and flowery and heated imagination beware of; because the things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must Stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity thou must commune with God.
Heaven to me's a fair blue Stretch of sky, Earth's jest a dusty road.john masefield
A slender young Blackbird built in a thorn-tree: A spruce little fellow as ever could be; His bill was so yellow, his feathers so black, So long was his tail, and so glossy his back, That good Mrs. B., who sat hatching her eggs, And only just left them to Stretch her poor legs, And pick for a minute the worm she preferred, Thought there never was seen such a beautiful bird.dinah craik
Jesus shall reign where'er the sun Does his successive journeys run; His kingdom Stretch from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more.Isaac Watts
Awake, my soul! Stretch every nerve,And press with vigour on;A heavenly race demands thy zeal,And an immortal crown.Philip Doddridge
I think you need inspiration, motivation from different angles to keep you going, because it isn’t that simple just to wake up every morning and go for another travel around the world, another practice, all these other things; another fitness workout, another Stretch. It’s always nice, but you need to have some success and you need to have the right reasons why you’re doing it. I think I’ve always been able to do that and I really enjoy myself out on the court.roger federer
[There are] judges who Stretch the law...to suit reactionary attitudes.michael foot
The gray-green Stretch of sandy grass,Indefinitely desolate;A sea of lead, a sky of slate;Already autumn in the air, alas!One stark monotony of stone,The long hotel, acutely white,Against the after-sunset lightWithers gray-green, and takes the grass's tone.arthur symons
And so no force however great can Stretch a cord however fine into an horizontal line which is accurately straight.william whewell
O love, whose lordly hand Has bridled my desires, And raised my hunger and my thirst To dignity and pride, Let not the strong in me and the constant Eat the bread or drink the wine That tempt my weaker self. Let me rather starve, And let my heart parch with thirst, And let me die and perish, Ere I Stretch my hand To a cup you did not fill, Or a bowl you did not bless.khalil gibran
Gaskell could not abide this indecorous version of his beloved linear progress theory. He could not bear to imagine that the grand procession from jellyfish to man, orchestrated by an ever-increasing mass of nervous tissue, once paused in its stately and orderly march toward human consciousness in order to execute a fancy little flip, a clever jig of inversion, just at the sublime and definitive moment of entrance into the vertebral home Stretch.stephen jay gould
The history of the past fifty years, and longer, indicates that a diversified holding of representative common stocks will prove more profitable over a Stretch of years than a bond portfolio, with one important provisio that the shares must be purchased at reasonable market levels, that is, levels that are reasonable in the light of fairly well-defined standards derived from past experience.benjamin graham
Life begins perpetually. Gathered together at last under the leadership of man, the student-teacher of the universe... unified, disciplined, armed with the secret powers of the atom, and with knowledge as yet beyond dreaming, Life, forever dying to be born afresh, forever young and eager, will presently stand upon this earth as upon a footstool, and Stretch out its realm amidst the stars.
The tradition is one of iconic crossings across the river Hooghly in the Stretch of the river falling within the enlarged Kolkata metro area – Vivekananda Bridge (Bally Bridge), Rabindar Setu, (Howrah Bridge) and Vidyasagar Setu (Second Hooghly Bridge). While the mighty river forms the backdrop of the development of the region over centuries, it had also posed a challenge as regards connection to the rest of the country. It is this challenge that the continuing tradition addresses, and addresses a new with a state-of-the art, recently opened and the newly christened Nivedita Bridge.
Let firm, well hammer'd soles protect thy feet Through freezing snows, and rains, and soaking sleet; Should the big last extend the shoe too wide, Each stone will wrench the unwary step aside; The sudden turn may Stretch the swelling vein, The cracking joint unhinge, or ankle sprain; And when too short the modish shoes are worn, You'll judge the seasons by your shooting corn.john gay
The best way to support dreams and Stretch is to set apart small ideas with big potential, then give people positive role models and the resources to turn small projects into big businesses.
The Ganges front is the supreme showplace of Banares. Its tall bluffs are solidly caked from water to summit, along a Stretch of three miles, with a splendid jumble of massive and picturesque masonry, a bewildering and beautiful confusion of stone platforms , temples , stair flights, rich and stately palaces...soaring stairways, sculptured temples, majestic palaces, softening away into the distances; and there is movement, motion, human life everywhere, and brilliantly costumed - streaming in rainbows up and down the lofty stairways, and massed in metaphorical gardens on the mile of great platforms at the river's edge.
As one of India ’s largest and most sacred pilgrimage centers, Benares (Varanasi) has been revered for centuries by Hindus , Muslims , Buddhists , and Jains , millions of whom come to visit its innumerable temples and shrines and come to bathe along a three-mile Stretch of steps leading to the Holy Ganga (Ganges) River. Whether coming for salvation, prosperity, or healing, most of these pilgrims have sought some form of ritual purification – a means of unloading their troubles and sins upon stars and holy men, the river Ganga, and the many sacred tanks fed by her springs and tributaries.
An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to Stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.thomas paine
