Appointed

Famous quotes containing the word appointed:

    I dare say I am compelled, unconsciously compelled, now to write volume after volume, as in past years I was compelled to go to sea, voyage after voyage. Leaves must follow upon each other as leagues used to follow in the days gone by, on and on to the appointed end, which, being Truth itself, is One—one for all men and for all occupations.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    Like pilgrims to th’ appointed place we tend;
    The world’s an inn, and death the journey’s end.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    Mud unto mud!—Death eddies near—
    Not here the appointed End, not here!
    But somewhere, beyond Space and Time,
    Is wetter water, slimier slime!
    Rupert Brooke (1887–1915)
