Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, modern and/or movements:

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    We Irish, born into that ancient sect
    But thrown upon this filthy modern tide
    And by its formless spawning fury wrecked,
    Climb to our proper dark, that we may trace
    The lineaments of a plummet-measured face.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Just as language has no longer anything in common with the thing it names, so the movements of most of the people who live in cities have lost their connexion with the earth; they hang, as it were, in the air, hover in all directions, and find no place where they can settle.
    Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)
