Upper Valley

Famous quotes containing the words upper and/or valley:

    “All men live in suffering
    I know as few can know,
    Whether they take the upper road
    Or stay content on the low....”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I will frankly declare, that after passing a few weeks in this valley of the Marquesas, I formed a higher estimate of human nature than I had ever before entertained. But alas! since then I have been one of the crew of a man-of-war, and the pent-up wickedness of five hundred men has nearly overturned all my previous theories.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
