Waves

Famous quotes containing the word waves:

    Achilles had strapped the wind
    About his ankles,
    He brushed rocks
    The waves had flung.
    He ran in armour.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    There is no sea more dangerous than the ocean of practical politics—none in which there is more need of good pilotage and of a single, unfaltering purpose when the waves rise high.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895)

    Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
    So do our minutes hasten to their end;
    Each changing place with that which goes before,
    In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
