Stone

Famous quotes containing the word stone:

    Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labour, and we will give you work.
    Sean O’Casey (1884–1964)

    You see, in a world where elephants are pursued by flying men, people are just naturally going to want to get high.
    Judith Rascoe, U.S. screenwriter, Robert Stone (b. 1939)

    Ye could not know where lies a thing so fair,
    No stone is there to show, no tongue to say,
    What was; no dirge, except the hollow sea’s,
    Mourns o’er the beauty of the Cyclades.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
