Famous quotes containing the words edwin muir and/or muir:

    I have observed in foolish awe
    The dateless mid-days of the law
    And seen indifferent justice done
    By everyone on everyone.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)

    They do not live in the world,
    Are not in time and space.
    From birth to death hurled
    No word do they have, not one
    To plant a foot upon,
    Were never in any place.
    —Edwin Muir (1887–1959)
