Famous quotes containing the words earth, man and/or fell:

    The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard,
    The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky,
    Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard;
    Enough that he heard it once; we shall hear it by and by.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    There is no man who desires as passionately as a Russian. If we could imprison a Russian desire beneath a fortress, that fortress would explode.
    Joseph De Maistre (1753–1821)

    They warsled up, they warsled down,
    Till Sir John fell to the ground,
    And there was a knife in Sir Willie’s pouch,
    Gied him a deadlie wound.
