Famous quotes containing the words richard eberhart, richard and/or eberhart:

    we, outlaws on God’s property,
    Fling out imagination beyond the skies,
    Wishing a tangible good from the unknown.
    And likewise death will drive us from the scene
    With the great flowering world unbroken yet,
    Which we held in idea, a little handful.
    Richard Eberhart (b. 1904)

    See, see, King Richard doth himself appear,
    As doth the blushing discontented sun
    From out the fiery portal of the east.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Was man made stupid to see his own stupidity?
    Is God by definition indifferent, beyond us all?
    Is the eternal truth man’s fighting soul
    Wherein the Beast ravens in its own avidity?
    —Richard Eberhart (b. 1904)
