Preserved

Famous quotes containing the word preserved:

    But at my back I always hear
    Time’s winged chariot hurrying near;
    And yonder all before us lie
    Deserts of vast eternity.
    Thy beauty shall no more be found,
    Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound
    My echoing song: then worms shall try
    That long preserved virginity:
    And your quaint honor turn to dust,
    And into ashes all my lust:
    The grave’s a fine and private place,
    But none, I think, do there embrace.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    The unity of effect or impression is a point of the greatest importance. It is clear, moreover, that this unity cannot be thoroughly preserved in productions whose perusal cannot be completed at one sitting.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation.
    Isaac D’Israeli (1766–1848)
