Famous quotes containing the word feet:

    The stairway is not
    a thing of gleaming strands
    a radiant evanescence
    for angels’ feet that only glance in their tread, and need not
    touch the stone.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    This world has many rings, like Saturn, and we live now on the outmost of them all. None can say deliberately that he inhabits the same sphere, or is contemporary, with the flower which his hands have plucked, and though his feet may seem to crush it, inconceivable spaces and ages separate them, and perchance there is no danger that he will hurt it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
