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 mans cry from autumn long since gone.
I cry to you beyond upon his bitter air.”
—Archibald MacLeish (18921982)
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 (19221986)
