From 'The New Colossus', inscribed at the foot of the Statue of Liberty, New York harbour,1883.
Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way. ~ Ronald Reagan
I observe you have thought proper to insert the last number of the Philosophical Magazine your opinion that my attempts at the safety tubes and apertures were borrowed from what I have heard of Sir Humphrey Davy's researches. The principles upon which a safety lamp might be constructed I stated to several persons long before Sir Humphrey Davy came into this part of the country. The plan of such a lamp was seen by several and the lamp itself was in the hands of the manufacturers during the time he was here.george stephenson
When night hath set her silver lamp on high, then is the time for study.philip james bailey
Still the race of hero spirits pass the lamp from hand to hand.Charles Kingsley
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
And all small fowlys singis on the spray: Welcum the lord of lycht and lamp of day.Gavin Douglas
I should be able to get the alligators to dance to the tune of the pan pipe. (March 30, 1947) I should give all the works of Baudelaire for a female Olympic swimmer. (Letters to Milton Hindus) Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it.louis-ferdinand céline
And al smail fowlys syngis on the spray:Welcum the lord of lycht, and lamp of day.Gavin Douglas
Baba's words and actions have lit the lamp of love in the hearts of devotees and they will always remember him for the good things he has done.sathya sai baba
Is it possible for the rose to say, "I will give my fragrance to the good people who smell me, but I will withhold it from the bad?" Or is it possible for the lamp to say, "I will give my light to the good people in this room, but I will withhold it from the evil people"? Or can a tree say, "I'll give my shade to the good people who rest under me, but I will withhold it from the bad"? These are images of what love is about.anthony de mello
He lit a lamp in broad daylight and said, as he went about, "I am looking for a human ."Diogenes of Sinope
Rollerball is an incoherent mess, a jumble of footage in search of plot, meaning, rhythm and sense. There are bright colors and quick movement on the screen, which we can watch as a visual pattern that, in entertainment value, falls somewhere between a kaleidoscope and a lava lamp.roger ebert
When the lamp is shattered The light in the dust lies dead When the cloud is scattered, The rainbow's glory is shed.Percy Bysshe Shelley
A pardlike Spirit beautiful and swift A Love in desolation masked; a Power Girt round with weakness; it can scarce uplift The weight of the superincumbent hour; It is a dying lamp, a falling shower, A breaking billow; even whilst we speak Is it not broken? On the withering flower The killing sun smiles brightly: on a cheek The life can burn in blood, even while the heart may break.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Life is the lust of a lamp for the light that is dark till the dawn of the day that we die.algernon charles swinburne
As when the moon , refulgent lamp of night , O'er heaven 's clear azure spreads her sacred light , When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole, O'er the dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head; Then shine the vales, the rocks in prospect rise, A flood of glory bursts from all the skies.
An apt quotation is like a lamp which flings its light over the whole sentence.letitia elizabeth landon
And while the lamp holds out to burn, The vilest sinner may return.Isaac Watts
My lamp! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Light gatherer. You fell from a star into my lap, the soft lamp at the bedside mirrored in you, and now you shine like a snowgirl, a buttercup under a chin, the wide blue yonder you squeal at and fly in.carol ann duffy
Oh, had I but Aladdin's lamp Tho' only for a day, I'd try to find a link to bind The joys that pass away.
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,Old Time is still a-flying,And this same flower that smiles todayTomorrow will be dying.The glorious lamp of Heaven, the Sun,The higher he's a-gettingThe sooner will his race be run,And nearer he's to setting.Robert Herrick
