Famous quotes containing the words mirage, air and/or force:

    Go out of the house to see the moon, and ‘t is mere tinsel; it will not please as when its light shines upon your necessary journey. The beauty that shimmers in the yellow afternoons of October, who could ever clutch it? Go forth to find it, and it is gone: ‘t is only a mirage as you look from the windows of diligence.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    More beautiful and soft than any moth
    With burring furred antennae feeling its huge path
    Through dusk, the air liner with shut-off engines
    Glides over suburbs
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    Who were the fools who spread the story that brute force cannot kill ideas? Nothing is easier. And once they are dead they are no more than corpses.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
