Air Base

Famous quotes containing the words air and/or base:

    The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
    The lowing herd wind slowly o’er the lea,
    The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,
    And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
    Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight,
    And all the air a solemn stillness holds,
    Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,
    And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    All that are printed and bound are not books; they do not necessarily belong to letters, but are oftener to be ranked with the other luxuries and appendages of civilized life. Base wares are palmed off under a thousand disguises.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
