Million Light Years

Famous quotes containing the words million, light and/or years:

    The ancestral deed is thought and done,
    And in a million Edens fall
    A million Adams drowned in darkness,
    For small is great and great is small,
    And a blind seed all.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)

    Men’s hearts are cold. They are indifferent. Not all the coal that is dug warms the world. It remains indifferent to the lives of those who risk their life and health down in the blackness of the earth; who crawl through dark, choking crevices with only a bit of lamp on their caps to light their silent way; whose backs are bent with toil, whose very bones ache, whose happiness is sleep, and whose peace is death.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    I Years had been from Home
    And now before the Door
    I dared not enter,
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
