Famous quotes containing the word step:

    There was never a man born so wise or good, but one or more companions came into the world with him, who delight in his faculty, and report it. I cannot see without awe, that no man thinks alone and no man acts alone, but the divine assessors who came up with him into life,—now under one disguise, now under another,—like a police in citizen’s clothes, walk with him, step for step, through all kingdoms of time.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Lift latch, step in, be welcome, Sir,
    Albiet to see you I’m unglad
    Max Beerbohm (1872–1956)

    This far outstripped the other;
    Yet ever runs she with reverted face,
    And looks and listens for the boy behind:
    For he, alas! is blind!
    O’er rough and smooth with even step he passed,
    And knows not whether he be first or last.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
