Famous quotes containing the words skating, world, speed and/or cup:

    In skating over thin ice, our safety is in our speed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Let us, then, take our compass; we are something, and we are not everything. The nature of our existence hides from us the knowledge of first beginnings which are born of the nothing; and the littleness of our being conceals from us the sight of the infinite. Our intellect holds the same position in the world of thought as our body occupies in the expanse of nature.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The terror of the atom age is not the violence of the new power but the speed of man’s adjustment to it—the speed of his acceptance.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    Sunday morning may be cheery enough, with its extra cup of coffee and litter of Sunday newspapers, but there is always hanging over it the ominous threat of 3 P.M., when the sun gets around to the back windows and life stops dead in its tracks.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
