Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep! Though boundless snows the withered heath deform, And the dim sun scarce wanders through the storm, Yet shall the smile of social love repay, With mental light, the melancholy day! And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er, The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore, How bright the fagots in his little hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!
The objects that we have known in better days are the main props that sustain the weight of our affections, and give us strength to await our future lot. The future is like a dead Wall or a thick mist hiding all objects from our view; the past is alive and stirring with objects, bright or solemn, and of unfading interest.william hazlitt
I consider my painting finished when my eyes goes to a particular spot on the canvas. But if I put the picture away about thirty feet on the Wall and the movements keep returning to me and the eye seems to be responding to something living, then it is finished.william baziotes
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.
If we do not depart from God, and disunite by that departure, and fall into disunion among ourselves, I am confident, we doing our duty and waiting upon the Lord, we shall find He will be as a Wall of brass round about us till we have finished that work which he has for us to do.Oliver Cromwell
I have these large pieces of recycled brown paper stretched on my apartment Wall and when I am not doing anything fashion-related, I'm drawing on it, playing with colour spectrums.
...located at an elevation of about 390m. ...the walled Wall city is in the northeast of Jaipur, while the new parts spread to south and west. Heir to a rich intellectual heritage, Jaipurians, Hindu and Muslim men alike have bright Rajput turbans and swashbuckling mustaches while the women wear colourful saris.
You think that a Wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.
Flower in the crannied Wall, I pluck you out of the crannies, I hold you here, root and all, in my hand, Little flower but if I could understand What you are, root and all, and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
The word [anathema] literally means something set up or laid by to be kept, as a votive offering might be hung on a temple Wall after being devoted to a god. Because offerings devoted to the true God were commonly burnt in their entirety or otherwise destroyed, the word in biblical usage signifies something ‘accursed’ or doomed to destruction ”.
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the Wall!'
An account of it would have been thought fabulous, were not the Wall itself extant.joseph addison
The CDO was, in effect, a credit laundering service for the residents of Lower Middle Class America. For Wall Street it was a machine that turned lead into gold.michael lewis
The fall of Wall Street is for market fundamentalism what the fall of the Berlin Wall was for communism.
Wall Street is where prophets tell us what will happen and profits tell us what did happen.
There comes a time in a man's life when to get where he has to goif there are no doors or windows he walks through a Wall.Bernard Malamud
I foresee great refinements in the field of short-pulse microwave signaling, whereby several simultaneous programs may occupy the same channel, in sequence, with incredibly swift electronic communication; vastly important developments in microwave technique, whereby present clumsy connecting leads between Wall or floor sockets and electric devices like toasters and vacuum sweepers may become unnecessary; gigantic magnetrons and klystrons, or their successors, will generate megawatts in microwaves; living rooms and their occupants will be heated by high-frequency waves from walls or ceilings; short waves will be generally used in the kitchen for roasting and baking, almost instantaneouslyLee De Forest
It was a distance about twice as long as this room; then there was a Wall, and just beyond it the crematory. When the wind blew in at the south I got smoke in my cell. It was a fat smoke, big flakes of smoke - human smoke.franz halder
This mighty Wall of four score miles in length is only exceeded by the Chinese Wall, which makes a considerable figure upon the terrestrial globe, and may be discerned at the moon.william stukeley
Had there been no Buckley, there would likely have been no Reagan administration, no Morning in America, no “Tear down this Wall,” and no Cold War triumph for liberty and the West. It may sometimes be confusing, what with all the intramural squabbling among libertarian conservatives, neoconservatives, paleoconservatives, and the like, to know exactly what “conservatism” stands for these days. But Buckley more than anyone made clear that there are things it would not stand for.buckley, william f., jr.
Pardon me, my friends, I have ventured to paint my happiness on the Wall.friedrich nietzsche
We wonder why a certain church-member is so lax in his devotions and loose in his practices. The reason is that, while his trunk and his branches are over on the church side of the Wall, his roots run under the Wall and dwell in the bad soil on the other side.
