Famous quotes containing the word hall:

    The statements of science are hearsay, reports from a world outside the world we know. What the poet tells us has long been known to us all, and forgotten. His knowledge is of our world, the world we are both doomed and privileged to live in, and it is a knowledge of ourselves, of the human condition, the human predicament.
    —John Hall Wheelock (1886–1978)

    Chipmunks jump, and
    Greensnakes slither.
    Rather burst than
    Not be with her.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
    His hearth the earth,—his hall the azure dome;
    Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road,
    By God’s own light illumined and foreshadowed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
