Famous quotes containing the word lay:

    The whole world of thought lay unexplored before me,—a world of which I had already caught large and tempting glimpses, and I did not like to feel the horizon shutting me in, even to so pleasant a corner as this.
    Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)

    Be not the first by whom the new are tried,
    Nor yet the last to lay the old aside.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
