Famous quotes containing the words strikes and/or air:

    A man of sense, though born without wit, often lives to have wit. His memory treasures up ideas and reflections; he compares them with new occurrences, and strikes out new lights from the collision. The consequence is sometimes bons mots, and sometimes apothegms.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Then, that no region of the universe
    Should remain void of life, the floor of heaven
    Was peopled with the stars and godlike forms,
    The seas became the abode of glittering fish.
    Earth took the beasts and mobile air the birds.
    A holier animal was wanting.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
