Famous quotes containing the words tombs and/or daniel:

    How old the world is! I walk between two eternities.... What is my fleeting existence in comparison with that decaying rock, that valley digging its channel ever deeper, that forest that is tottering and those great masses above my head about to fall? I see the marble of tombs crumbling into dust; and yet I don’t want to die!
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    When winter snows upon thy sable hairs,
    And frost of age hath nipped thy beauties near;
    When dark shall seem thy day that never clears,
    And all lies withered that was held so dear,
    Then take this picture which I here present thee,
    Limned with a pencil not all unworthy;
    —Samuel Daniel (1562–1619)
