Famous quotes containing the words stars and/or silver:

    In our science and philosophy, even, there is commonly no true and absolute account of things. The spirit of sect and bigotry has planted its hoof amid the stars. You have only to discuss the problem, whether the stars are inhabited or not, in order to discover it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Keep the home fires burning,
    While your hearts are yearning,
    Though your lads are far away
    They dream of home.
    There’s a silver lining
    Through the dark cloud shining;
    Turn the dark cloud inside out,
    Till the boys come home.
    Lena Guilbert Ford (1870–1916)
