Sets

Famous quotes containing the word sets:

    It is time to be old,
    To take in sail:—
    The god of bounds,
    Who sets to seas a shore,
    Came to me in his fatal rounds,
    And said: ‘No more!’
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A continual feast of commendation is only to be obtained by merit or by wealth: many are therefore obliged to content themselves with single morsels, and recompense the infrequency of their enjoyment by excess and riot, whenever fortune sets the banquet before them.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    We love the indomitable bellicose patriotism that sets you apart; we love the national pride that guides your muscularly courageous race; we love the potent individualism that doesn’t prevent you from opening your arms to individualists of every land, whether libertarians or anarchists.
    Tommaso Marinetti (1876–1944)
