Famous quotes containing the words earth and/or heaven:
“I am not aware that any man has ever built on the spot which I occupy. Deliver me from a city built on the site of a more ancient city, whose materials are ruins, whose gardens cemeteries. The soil is blanched and accursed there, and before that becomes necessary the earth itself will be destroyed.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Nay, had she been true,
If heaven would make me such another world
Of one entire and perfect chrysolite,
Id not have sold her for it.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
