Famous quotes containing the words court and/or circuit:

    At court I met it, in clothes brave enough
    To be a courtier, and looks grave enough
    To seem a statesman.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    Within the circuit of this plodding life
    There enter moments of an azure hue,
    Untarnished fair as is the violet
    Or anemone, when the spring strews them
    By some meandering rivulet, which make
    The best philosophy untrue that aims
    But to console man for his grievances.
    I have remembered when the winter came,
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
