Stones

Famous quotes containing the word stones:

    He who will one day teach men to fly will have displaced all boundary stones; the boundary stones themselves will fly up into the air to him, and he will rebaptize the earth—as “the weightless.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Man is made of the same atoms the world is, he shares the same impressions, predispositions, and destiny. When his mind is illuminated, when his heart is kind, he throws himself joyfully into the sublime order, and does, with knowledge, what the stones do by structure.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The writing of a poem is like a child throwing stones into a mineshaft. You compose first, then you listen for the reverberation.
    James Fenton (b. 1949)
