Famous quotes containing the words lapped and/or cars:
“Till the war-drum throbbed no longer, and the battle-flags were
In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe,
And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapped in universal law.”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
“When, at rare intervals, some thought visits one, as perchance he is walking on a railroad, then, indeed, the cars go by without his hearing them. But soon, by some inexorable law, our life goes by and the cars return.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
