Famous quotes containing the words revealed, continent and/or lost:

    What has been hidden by snow is revealed by a thaw.
    Swedish proverb, trans. by Verne Moberg.

    The etymologist finds the deadest word to have been once a brilliant picture. Language is fossil poetry. As the limestone of the continent consists of infinite masses of the shells of animalcules, so language is made up of images or tropes, which now, in their secondary use, have long ceased to remind us of their poetic origin.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I got lost but look what I found.
    Irving Berlin (1888–1989)
