Climbs

Famous quotes containing the word climbs:

    And the child not caring to whom he climbs his prayer
    Shall drown in a grief as deep as his made grave,
    And mark the dark eyed wave, through the eyes of sleep,
    Dragging him up the stairs to one who lies dead.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    What climbs the stair?
    Nothing that common women ponder on
    If you are worth my hope! Neither Content
    Nor satisfied Conscience, but that great family
    Some ancient famous authors misrepresent,
    The Proud Furies each with her torch on high.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Follow in the footsteps of your fathers’ virtue! How could you hope to climb high unless your fathers’ will climbs with you?
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
