Famous quotes containing the words transport, ivory and/or coast:

    One may disavow and disclaim vices that surprise us, and whereto our passions transport us; but those which by long habits are rooted in a strong and ... powerful will are not subject to contradiction. Repentance is but a denying of our will, and an opposition of our fantasies.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    We have fallen in the dreams the Ever-living
    Breathe on the burnished mirror of the world
    And then smooth out with ivory hands and sigh,
    And find their laughter sweeter to the taste
    For that brief sighing.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    My impression about the Panama Canal is that the great revolution it is going to introduce in the trade of the world is in the trade between the east and the west coast of the United States.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
