Famous quotes containing the word meet:

    I sang of death but had I known
    The many deaths one must have died
    Before he came to meet his own!
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    There are two kinds of timidity—timidity of mind, and timidity of the nerves; physical timidity, and moral timidity. Each is independent of the other. The body may be frightened and quake while the mind remains calm and bold, and vice versë. This is the key to many eccentricities of conduct. When both kinds meet in the same man he will be good for nothing all his life.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)

    A great deal of us is together, and we can but abide by it, and steer our courses to meet soon. John Thomas says goodnight to Lady Jane, a little droopingly, but with hopeful heart.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
