Famous quotes containing the words ice, men and/or division:

    In vain produced, all rays return;
    Evil will bless, and ice will burn.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    This hard work will always be done by one kind of man; not by scheming speculators, nor by soldiers, nor professors, nor readers of Tennyson; but by men of endurance—deep-chested, long- winded, tough, slow and sure, and timely.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    O, if you raise this house against this house
    It will the woefullest division prove
    That ever fell upon this cursed earth.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
