Famous quotes containing the words power, stations, sir, adam and/or beck:

    First, there is the power of the Wind, constantly exerted over the globe.... Here is an almost incalculable power at our disposal, yet how trifling the use we make of it! It only serves to turn a few mills, blow a few vessels across the ocean, and a few trivial ends besides. What a poor compliment do we pay to our indefatigable and energetic servant!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    mourn

    The majesty and burning of the child’s death.
    I shall not murder
    The mankind of her going with a grave truth
    Nor blaspheme down the stations of the breath
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Never say a humorous thing to a man who does not possess humour. He will always use it in evidence against you.
    Herbert, Sir Beerbohm (1853–1917)

    When Adam found his rib was gone
    He cursed and sighed and cried and swore
    And looked with cold resentment on
    The creature God has used it for.
    John Hollander (b. 1929)

    In front of that sinner of a husband,
    she rattled off
    only those words
    that her pack of vile-tongued girlfriends
    taught her
    as fast as she could,
    and after,
    began to behave
    at the Love-god’s beck and call.
    It’s indescribable,
    this natural, charming
    path of love,
    paved with the gems
    of inexperience.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
