Rays

Famous quotes containing the word rays:

    ‘Line in nature is not found;
    Unit and universe are round;
    In vain produced, all rays return;
    Evil will bless, and ice will burn.’
    As Uriel spoke with piercing eye,
    A shudder ran around the sky;
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Beneath the sun’s rays our shadow is our comrade;
    When clouds obscure the sun our shadow flees.
    So Fortune’s smiles the fickle crowd pursues,
    But swift is gone whenever she veils her face.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    In vain produced, all rays return;
    Evil will bless, and ice will burn.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
