Famous quotes containing the word chain:

    Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world—and never will.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Oh yes, that’s right. They chain up wild animals. That’s all I am, an animal.
    John Elder [Anthony Hinds], British screenwriter, and Terence Fisher. Leon (Oliver Reed)

    How have I been able to live so long outside Nature without identifying myself with it? Everything lives, moves, everything corresponds; the magnetic rays, emanating either from myself or from others, cross the limitless chain of created things unimpeded; it is a transparent network that covers the world, and its slender threads communicate themselves by degrees to the planets and stars. Captive now upon earth, I commune with the chorus of the stars who share in my joys and sorrows.
    Gérard De Nerval (1808–1855)
