Space Giraffe

Famous quotes containing the words space and/or giraffe:

    But alas! I never could keep a promise. I do not blame myself for this weakness, because the fault must lie in my physical organization. It is likely that such a very liberal amount of space was given to the organ which enables me to make promises, that the organ which should enable me to keep them was crowded out. But I grieve not. I like no half-way things. I had rather have one faculty nobly developed than two faculties of mere ordinary capacity.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    All that blesses the step of the antelope
    all the grace a giraffe lifts to the highest leaves
    all steadfastness and pleasant gazing, alien to ennui,
    dwell secretly behind man’s misery.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
