Famous quotes containing the word possession:

    Happier of happy though I be, like them
    I cannot take possession of the sky,
    Mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there,
    One of a mighty multitude whose way
    And motion is a harmony and dance
    Magnificent.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Say next to holiness is the will thereto,
    And next to love is the desire for love,
    The desire for its celestial ease in the heart,
    Which nothing can frustrate, that most secure,
    Unlike love in possession of that which was
    To be possessed and is.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    ... men and women are not yet free.... The slavery of greed endures. Little child workers, the hope of the future, are sacrificed to industry. Young men are sent out by the billion to die for profits.... We must destroy industrial slavery and build industrial democracy.... The people everywhere must come into possession of the earth [second, third, and fourth ellipses in source].
    Sara Bard Field (1882–1974)
