Famous quotes containing the word long:

    It is marvelous indeed to watch on television the rings of Saturn close; and to speculate on what we may yet find at galaxy’s edge. But in the process, we have lost the human element; not to mention the high hope of those quaint days when flight would create “one world.” Instead of one world, we have “star wars,” and a future in which dumb dented human toys will drift mindlessly about the cosmos long after our small planet’s dead.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    the bitter in soul;
    Which long for death,
    Bible: Hebrew Job (l. III, 20–21)

    E.M. Cioran (b. 1911)
