Solar Year

Famous quotes containing the words solar and/or year:

    The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation, and the credit of truth and honesty is as safe; nor have I any fear that a skeptical bias can be given by leaning hard on the sides of fate, of practical power, or of trade, which the doctrine of Faith cannot down-weigh.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    “That corpse you planted last year in your garden,
    “Has it begun to sprout? Will it bloom this year?
    “Or has the sudden frost disturbed its bed?
    “O keep the Dog far hence, that’s friend to men,
    “Or with his nails he’ll dig it up again!
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
