Partly Due

Famous quotes containing the words partly and/or due:

    We are underbred and low-lived and illiterate; and in this respect I confess I do not make any very broad distinction between the illiterateness of my townsman who cannot read at all and the illiterateness of him who has learned to read only what is for children and feeble intellects. We should be as good as the worthies of antiquity, but partly by first knowing how good they were.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But let my due feet never fail
    To walk the studious cloister’s pale,
    And love the high embowed roof,
    With antic pillars massy proof,
    And storied windows richly dight,
    Casting a dim, religious light.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
