Famous quotes containing the words set and/or smart:

    Men would never be superstitious, if they could govern all their circumstances by set rules, or if they were always favoured by fortune: but being frequently driven into straits where rules are useless, and being often kept fluctuating pitiably between hope and fear by the uncertainty of fortune’s greedily coveted favours, they are consequently for the most part, very prone to credulity.
    Baruch (Benedict)

    Glorious the northern lights astream;
    Glorious the song, when God’s the theme
    Glorious the thunder’s roar:
    Glorious hosanna from the den;
    Glorious the catholic amen;
    Glorious the martyr’s gore:

    Glorious—more glorious is the crown
    Of him that brought salvation down
    By meekness, called thy Son;
    Thou that stupendous truth believed,
    And now the matchless deed’s achieved,
    Determined, Dared, and Done.
    —Christopher Smart (1722–1771)
