Famous quotes containing the word drop:

    What a vast fraternity it is,—that of ‘Hearts that Ache.’ For the last three months it has seemed to me as though all society were coming to me, to drop its mask for a moment and initiate me into the mystery. How we do suffer! And we go on laughing; for, as a practical joke at our expense, life is a success.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Through the certain prospect of death, a precious, sweet- smelling drop of levity might be mixed into every life—but now you strange pharmacist-souls have turned it into a foul-tasting drop of poison through which all life is made repulsive.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
