Leagues

Famous quotes containing the word leagues:

    Only be admonished by what you already see, not to strike leagues of friendship with cheap persons, where no friendship can be. Our impatience betrays us into rash and foolish alliances which no God attends.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    By a knight of ghosts and shadows
    I summon’d am to a tourney
    Ten leagues beyond the wide world’s end:
    Methinks it is no journey.
    —Unknown. Tom o’ Bedlam’s Song (l. 57–60)

    Good news about someone never gets past the door, but bad news will travel a thousand leagues away.
    Chinese proverb.
