Famous quotes containing the word air:

    Nor sequent centuries could hit
    Orbit and sum of SHAKSPEARE’s wit.
    The men who lived with him became
    Poets, for the air was fame.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The air was clear. He seemed in ultimate peace

    Except that he had no eyes. Rigid and bright
    Upon the forehead, furred
    With a light frost, crouched an outrageous bird.
    Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)

    Just as we are learning to value and conserve the air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we use, we must learn to value and conserve our capacity for nurture. Otherwise, in the name of human potential we will slowly but surely erode the source of our humanity.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
