Famous quotes containing the word carry:

    Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ... with unspeakable sounds
    that carry them this way and that
    while summer is hurrying its way in and out,
    over and over,
    in their room.

    Ends in themselves, my letters plot no change;
    They carry nothing dutiable; they won’t
    Aspire, astound, establish or estrange.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
