Famous quotes containing the words volume and/or world:

    A tattered copy of Johnson’s large Dictionary was a great delight to me, on account of the specimens of English versifications which I found in the Introduction. I learned them as if they were so many poems. I used to keep this old volume close to my pillow; and I amused myself when I awoke in the morning by reciting its jingling contrasts of iambic and trochaic and dactylic metre, and thinking what a charming occupation it must be to “make up” verses.
    Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)

    And though the shady gloom
    Had given day her room,
    The sun himself withheld his wonted speed,
    And hid his head for shame,
    As his inferior flame
    The new-enlightened world no more should need;
    He saw a greater Sun appear
    Than his bright throne or burning axle-tree could bear.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
