Famous quotes containing the word flight:

    it pleaseth me when I see through the meadows
    The tents and pavilions set up, and great joy have I
    When I see o’er the campana knights armed and horses arrayed.

    And it pleaseth me when the scouts set in flight the folk with
    their goods;
    And it pleaseth me when I see coming together after them an host of
    armed men.
    Bertrans De Born (fl. 12th century)

    Fear of error which everything recalls to me at every moment of the flight of my ideas, this mania for control, makes men prefer reason’s imagination to the imagination of the senses. And yet it is always the imagination alone which is at work.
    Louis Aragon (1897–1982)

    One man’s observation is another man’s closed book or flight of fancy.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
