Famous quotes containing the word measure:

    What we know partakes in no small measure of the nature of what has so happily been called the unutterable or ineffable, so that any attempt to utter or eff it is doomed to fail, doomed, doomed to fail.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    A solitary traveler whom we saw perambulating in the distance loomed like a giant. He appeared to walk slouchingly, as if held up from above by straps under his shoulders, as much as supported by the plain below. Men and boys would have appeared alike at a little distance, there being no object by which to measure them. Indeed, to an inlander, the Cape landscape is a constant mirage.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    O flight,
    bring her swiftly to our song.
    She is great,
    we measure her by the pine trees.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
