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

    Shall we now
    Contaminate our fingers with base bribes,
    And sell the mighty space of our large honors
    For so much trash as may be grasped thus?
    I had rather be a dog and bay the moon
    Than such a Roman.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The more we reduce ourselves to machines in the lower things, the more force we shall set free to use in the higher.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)

    “With your air indifferent and imperious
    At a stroke our mad poetics to confute—”
    And—”Are we then so serious?”
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
