Famous quotes containing the words western, england, university, school and/or law:

    But go, and if you listen she will call,
    Go to the western gate, Luke Havergal—
    Luke Havergal.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    The instincts of merry England lingered on here with exceptional vitality, and the symbolic customs which tradition has attached to each season of the year were yet a reality on Egdon. Indeed, the impulses of all such outlandish hamlets are pagan still: in these spots homage to nature, self-adoration, frantic gaieties, fragments of Teutonic rites to divinities whose names are forgotten, seem in some way or other to have survived mediaeval doctrine.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    The university is no longer a quiet place to teach and do scholarly work at a measured pace and contemplate the universe. It is big, complex, demanding, competitive, bureaucratic, and chronically short of money.
    Phyllis Dain (b. 1930)

    Out of life’s school of war.—What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    No. I am not the law in your mind,
    the grandfather of watchfulness.
    I am the law of your members,
    the kindred of blackness and impulse.
    See. Your hand shakes.
    It is not palsy or booze.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
