Human Lineage

Famous quotes containing the words human and/or lineage:

    It is the human season on this sterile air
    Do words outcarry breath the sound goes on and on.
    I hear a dead man’s cry from autumn long since gone.

    I cry to you beyond upon his bitter air.
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)

    I declare
    Two lineages electrify the air,
    That will like pennons from a mast
    Fly over sleep and life and death
    Till sun is powerless to decoy
    A single seed above the earth:
    Lineage of sorrow: lineage of joy....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
