Famous quotes containing the word fall:

    I believe, if we take habitual drunkards as a class, their heads and their hearts will bear an advantageous comparison with those of any other class. There seems ever to have been a proneness in the brilliant and warm-blooded to fall into this vice.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Here did she fall a tear. Here in this place
    I’ll set a bank of rue, sour herb-of-grace.
    Rue even for ruth here shortly shall be seen
    In the remembrance of a weeping queen.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
