Famous quotes containing the words rising and/or degrees:
“Oh, what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth. Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was a personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox!”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
