Worlds

Famous quotes containing the word worlds:

    Wipe your hand across your mouth, and laugh;
    The worlds revolve like ancient women
    Gathering fuel in vacant lots.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Where is there such an one who has not a thousand times been struck with a sort of infidel idea, that whatever other worlds God may be Lord of, he is not the Lord of this; for else this world would seem to give the lie to Him; so utterly repugnant seem its ways to the instinctively known ways of Heaven.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The worlds revolve like ancient women
    Gathering fuel in vacant lots.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
