Famous quotes containing the words engagement rings, rings, engagement, celebrities and/or diamond:

    But not gold in commercial quantities,
    Just enough gold to make the engagement rings
    And marriage rings of those who owned the farm.

    Ye say they all have passed away,
    That noble race and brave;
    That their light canoes have vanished
    From off the crested wave;
    That, mid the forests where they roamed,
    There rings no hunters’ shout;
    But their name is on your waters,
    Ye may not wash it out.
    Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865)

    We must continually remind students in the classroom that expression of different opinions and dissenting ideas affirms the intellectual process. We should forcefully explain that our role is not to teach them to think as we do but rather to teach them, by example, the importance of taking a stance that is rooted in rigorous engagement with the full range of ideas about a topic.
    bell hooks (b. 1955)

    Passengers in 1937 totaled 270,000; so many of these were celebrities that two Newark newspapers ran special airport columns.
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Masts in the offing wagged their tops;
    The swinging waves pealed on the shore;
    The saffron beach, all diamond drops
    And beads of surge, prolonged the roar.
    John Davidson (1857–1909)
