Famous quotes containing the words laws, duplicate and/or bridge:

    I have not yet learned to live, that I can see, and I fear that I shall not very soon. I find, however, that in the long run things correspond to my original idea,—that they correspond to nothing else so much; and thus a man may really be a true prophet without any great exertion. The day is never so dark, nor the night even, but that the laws at least of light still prevail, and so may make it light in our minds if they are open to the truth.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A man’s desire for a son is usually nothing but the wish to duplicate himself in order that such a remarkable pattern may not be lost to the world.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Paul Simon (b. 1949)
