Empire Flying

Famous quotes containing the words empire and/or flying:

    To Americans I hardly need to say,—
    “Westward the star of empire takes its way.”
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Now I am alone with the dead,
    flying off bridges,
    hurling myself like a beer can into the wastebasket.
    I am flying like a single red rose,
    leaving a jet stream
    of solitude....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
