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)

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

    Struck in the wet mire
    Four thousand leagues from the ninth buried city
    I thought of Troy, what we had built her for.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
