Ancient

Famous quotes containing the word ancient:

    An ancient bridge, and a more ancient tower,
    A farmhouse that is sheltered by its wall,
    An acre of stony ground,
    Where the symbolic rose can break in flower,
    Old ragged elms, old thorns innumerable....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    He was the man who of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul.... He needed not the spectacles of books to read Nature; he looked inwards, and found her there.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    Even as fog continues to lie in the valleys, so does ancient sin cling to the low places, the depressions in the world consciousness.
    Dewitt Bodeen (1908–1988)
