Famous quotes containing the words dying and/or assisted:

    The night has a thousand eyes,
    And the day but one;
    Yet the light of the bright world dies
    With the dying sun.
    Francis William Bourdillon (1852–1921)

    To anticipate, not the sunrise and the dawn merely, but, if possible, Nature herself! How many mornings, summer and winter, before yet any neighbor was stirring about his business, have I been about mine! No doubt, many of my townsmen have met me returning from this enterprise, farmers starting for Boston in the twilight, or woodchoppers going to their work. It is true, I never assisted the sun materially in his rising, but, doubt not, it was of the last importance only to be present at it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
