Mark Knopfler Dire Straits 1977���1995

Famous quotes containing the words mark, dire and/or straits:

    ...clothed and in his right mind,...
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 5:15.

    An Austrian army, awfully array’d,
    Boldly by battery besiege Belgrade;
    Cossack commanders cannonading come,
    Deal devastation’s dire destructive doom;
    Alaric Alexander Watts (1797–1864)

    Men would never be superstitious, if they could govern all their circumstances by set rules, or if they were always favoured by fortune: but being frequently driven into straits where rules are useless, and being often kept fluctuating pitiably between hope and fear by the uncertainty of fortune’s greedily coveted favours, they are consequently for the most part, very prone to credulity.
    Baruch (Benedict)
