Famous quotes containing the words team, piece, usa and/or miracle:

    I doubt if men ever made a trade of heroism. In the days of Achilles, even, they delighted in big barns, and perchance in pressed hay, and he who possessed the most valuable team was the best fellow.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Piece by piece I seem
    to re-enter the world: I first began
    a small, fixed dot, still see
    that old myself, a dark-blue thumbtack
    pushed into the scene,
    a hard little head protruding
    from the pointillist’s buzz and bloom.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The biggest difference between ancient Rome and the USA is that in Rome the common man was treated like a dog. In America he sets the tone. This is the first country where the common man could stand erect.
    —I.F. (Isidor Feinstein)

    Much verse fails of being poetry because it was not written exactly at the right crisis, though it may have been inconceivably near to it. It is only by a miracle that poetry is written at all. It is not recoverable thought, but a hue caught from a vaster receding thought.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
