Famous quotes containing the words ice, men and/or world:

    I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Is it not possible that an individual may be right and a government wrong? Are laws to be enforced simply because they were made? or declared by any number of men to be good, if they are not good? Is there any necessity for a man’s being a tool to perform a deed of which his better nature disapproves?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I felt my cheek
    Alter, to see the shadow pass away,
    Whose grasp had left the giant world so weak
    That every pigmy kicked it as it lay;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
