If gold must be gold, it must pass through the furnace.
I see traces of the turtle soup, and venison, and gold spoon in this.charles dickens
All flesh is one: what matter scores; Or color of the suit Or if the helmet glints with blue or gold? All is one bold achievement, All is fine spring-found-again-in-autumn day When juices run in antelopes along our blood, And green our flag, forever green…ray bradbury
On the contrary, it's because somebody knows something about it that we can't talk about physics . It's the things that nobody knows anything about that we can discuss. We can talk about the weather; we can talk about social problems; we can talk about psychology; we can talk about international finance gold transfers we can't talk about, because those are understood so it's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!richard feynman
And all amid them stood the Tree of Life, High eminent, blooming ambrosial fruit Of vegetable gold.john milton
The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and goldlord byron
Love set you going like a fat gold watch. The midwife slapped your footsoles, and your bald cry Took its place among the elements.Sylvia Plath
His iron coat all overgrown with rust, Was underneath envelope'd with gold, Whose glistering gloss darkened with filthy dust, Well yet appeare'd, to have been of old A work of rich entail, and curious mold, Woven with antics and wild imagery.Edmund Spenser
"At your time of life, it's love that rules the roast: at mine, it's solid, serviceable gold."anne brontë
What is charm, it is not a moral quality.. it is not intellectual for no man by much thinking is able to add a grain of it to his personality. One either has it or has it not, it cannot be acquired or even cultivated. It is not physical even.. it seems to be added to the human personality, an aura, a glow, the gold dust upon a butterfly's wing, the bloom upon a peach.flora thompson
There is at least a punky spark in my heart and it may blaze in this autumn gold, fanned by the King. Some of my grandfathers must have been born on a muirland for there is heather in me, and tinctures of bog juices, that send me to Cassiope, and oozing through all my veins impel me unhaltingly through endless glacier meadows, seemingly the deeper and danker the better.john muir
All gold and silver rather turn to dirt! As 'tis no better reckon'd, but of those Who worship dirty gods.william shakespeare
As I came down the Highgate Hill I met the sun's bravado, And saw below me, fold on fold, Grey to pearl and pearl to gold, This London like a land of old, The land of Eldorado.
There are few situations in life that cannot be honourably settled, and without loss of time, either by suicide, a bag of gold, or by thrusting a despised antagonist over the edge of a precipice upon a dark night.ernest bramah
Judges and senates have been bought for gold; Esteem and love were never to be sold.Alexander Pope
The lust of gold succeeds the rage of conquest; The lust of gold, unfeeling and remorseless! The last corruption of degenerate man.samuel johnson
The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold.lord byron
Beauty provoketh thieves sooner than gold.
And I often dream of chemistry at night, dreams that conflate the past and the present, the grid of the periodic table transformed to the grid of Manhattan. […] Sometimes, too, I dream of the indecipherable language of tin (a confused memory, perhaps, of its plaintive “cry”). But my favorite dream is of going to the opera (I am Hafnium), sharing a box at the Met with the other heavy transition metals my old and valued friends Tantalum, Rhenium, Osmium, Iridium, Platinum, gold, and Tungsten.oliver sacks
