Order

Famous quotes containing the word order:

    Dule and wae for the order sent our lads to the Border;
    The English, for ance, by guile won the day:
    The Flowers of the Forest, that foucht aye the foremost,
    The prime o’ our land, are cauld in the clay.
    Jean Elliot (1727–1805)

    You listen to artists fighting with each other, competing to the death like gladiators, in order to see who is going to get into a show, who is going to make it, who isn’t: who is going to get a full-page ad and who is going to get a half-page. Then I think, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to go off somewhere and just do your work?”
    Howardena Pindell (b. 1943)

    All the world is full of inscape and chance left free to act falls into an order as well as purpose.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
