Famous quotes containing the word held:

    A city on whom plenty held full hand,
    For riches strewed herself even in her streets;
    Whose towers bore heads so high they kissed the clouds,
    And strangers ne’er beheld but wondered at.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Anarchism is the great liberator of man from the phantoms that have held him captive; it is the arbiter and pacifier of the two forces for individual and social harmony.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    We have our little theory on all human and divine things. Poetry, the workings of genius itself, which, in all times, with one or another meaning, has been called Inspiration, and held to be mysterious and inscrutable, is no longer without its scientific exposition. The building of the lofty rhyme is like any other masonry or bricklaying: we have theories of its rise, height, decline and fall—which latter, it would seem, is now near, among all people.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)
