Famous quotes containing the word step:

    Each instant of life is a step toward death.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    I had not learned to let go with the hands,
    As still I have not learned to with the heart....

    And Thee, across the harbor, silver-paced
    As though the sun took step of thee, yet left
    Some motion ever unspent in thy stride,—
    Implicitly thy freedom staying thee!
