Famous quotes containing the word motion:

    Two children, all alone and no one by,
    Holding their tattered frocks, thro’an airy maze
    Of motion lightly threaded with nimble feet
    Dance sedately; face to face they gaze,
    Their eyes shining, grave with a perfect pleasure.
    Laurence Binyon (1869–1943)

    No motion has she now, no force;
    She neither hears nor sees;
    Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course,
    With rocks, and stones, and trees.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    subways, rivered under streets
    and rivers . . . in the car
    the overtone of motion
    underground, the monotone
    of motion is the sound
    of other faces, also underground—
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
