Famous quotes containing the word hours:

    Each morning the day lies like a fresh shirt on our bed; this incomparably fine, incomparably tightly woven tissue of pure prediction fits us perfectly. The happiness of the next twenty-four hours depends on our ability, on waking, to pick it up.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    In those hours when history becomes terrible, it is as if the soul of woman seizes the moment and tries to set an example for the soul of man ... the soul of the French woman is really a heroic blend of family and homeland.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    I marched in with the men afoot; a gallant show they made as they marched up High Street to the depot. Lucy and Mother Webb remained several hours until we left. I saw them watching me as I stood on the platform at the rear of the last car as long as they could see me. Their eyes swam. I kept my emotion under control enough not to melt into tears.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
