Noble Gases

Famous quotes containing the words noble and/or gases:

    I’ll make thee glorious by my pen
    And famous by my sword;
    I’ll serve thee in such noble ways
    Was never heard before;
    I’ll crown and deck thee all with bays,
    And love thee more and more.
    —James Graham Marquess of Montrose (1612–1650)

    The bird is not in its ounces and inches, but in its relations to Nature; and the skin or skeleton you show me, is no more a heron, than a heap of ashes or a bottle of gases into which his body has been reduced, is Dante or Washington.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
