Conservative Ascent

Famous quotes containing the words conservative and/or ascent:

    I never dared be radical when young
    For fear it would make me conservative when old.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I lay awake awhile, watching the ascent of the sparks through the firs, and sometimes their descent in half-extinguished cinders on my blanket. They were as interesting as fireworks, going up in endless, successive crowds, each after an explosion, in an eager, serpentine course, some to five or six rods above the tree-tops before they went out.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
