Famous quotes containing the word short:

    The names of those who in their lives fought for life,
    Who wore at their hearts the fire’s centre.

    And left the vivid air signed with their honour.
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
