Famous quotes containing the word lightening:

    As on the highroad he who walks lightest walks with most ease, so on the journey of
    life more happiness comes from lightening the needs by poverty than from panting under a
    burden of wealth.
    Marcus Minucius Felix (2nd or 3rd cen. A.D.)

    In externals we advance with lightening express speed, in modes of thought and sympathy we lumber on in stage-coach fashion.
    Frances E. Willard 1839–1898, U.S. president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union 1879-1891, author, activist. The Woman’s Magazine, pp. 137-40 (January 1887)
