Extinction Burst

Famous quotes containing the words extinction and/or burst:

    I wish all men to be free. I wish the material prosperity of the already free which I feel sure the extinction of slavery would bring.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Reason sits firm and holds the reins, and she will not let the feelings burst away and hurry her to wild chasms. The passions may rage furiously, like true heathens, as they are; and the desires may imagine all sorts of vain things: but judgement shall still have the last word in every argument, and the casting vote in every decision.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)
