Famous quotes containing the words solid and/or state:

    Every winter the liquid and trembling surface of the pond, which was so sensitive to every breath, and reflected every light and shadow, becomes solid to the depth of a foot or a foot and a half, so that it will support the heaviest teams, and perchance the snow covers it to an equal depth, and it is not to be distinguished from any level field. Like the marmots in the surrounding hills, it closes its eyelids and becomes dormant for three months or more.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Death is not natural for a state as it is for a human being, for whom death is not only necessary, but frequently even desirable.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)
