Famous quotes containing the words wing, carrier and/or air:

    How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth,
    Stolen on his wing my three-and-twentieth year!
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    When toddlers are unable to speak about urgent matters, they must resort to crying or screaming. This happens even with adults. The voice is the carrier of emotion, and when speech fails us, we need to cry out in whatever form we can to convey our meaning. Often, what passes for negativism is really the toddler’s desperate effort to make herself understood.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    ... anybody is as their land and air is. Anybody is as the sky is low or high, the air heavy or clear and anybody is as there is wind or no wind there. It is that which makes them and the arts they make and the work they do and the way they eat and the way they drink and the way they learn and everything.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
