Famous quotes containing the word hymn:

    The starting point of the human and the end,
    That in which space itself is contained, the gate
    To the enclosure, day, the things illumined
    By day, night and that which night illumines,
    Night and its midnight-minting fragrances,
    Night’s hymn of the rock, as in a vivid sleep.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Every formula which expresses a law of nature is a hymn of praise to God.
    Maria Mitchell (1818–1889)
