Famous quotes containing the word motion:

    Two children, all alone and no one by,
    Holding their tattered frocks, thro’an airy maze
    Of motion lightly threaded with nimble feet
    Dance sedately; face to face they gaze,
    Their eyes shining, grave with a perfect pleasure.
    Laurence Binyon (1869–1943)

    Too many Broadway actors in motion pictures lost their grip on success—had a feeling that none of it had ever happened on that sun-drenched coast, that the coast itself did not exist, there was no California. It had dropped away like a hasty dream and nothing could ever have been like the things they thought they remembered.
    Mae West (1892–1980)

    A field of water betrays the spirit that is in the air. It is continually receiving new life and motion from above. It is intermediate in its nature between land and sky.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
