Stretched

Famous quotes containing the word stretched:

    The world there was the flat world of the ancients; to the east, a cornfield that stretched to daybreak; to the west, a corral that reached to the sunset; between, the conquests of peace, dearer-bought than those of war.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Old men who never cheated, never doubted,
    Communicated monthly, sit and stare
    At the new suburb stretched beyond the run-way
    Where a young man lands hatless from the air.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)

    It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites—opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity—where energies flow smoothly in one direction—there will be much doing but no music.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
