Famous quotes containing the words deer and/or china:

    There is a road that turning always
    Cuts off the country of Again.
    Archers stand there on every side
    And as it runs time’s deer is slain,
    And lies where it has lain.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)

    Consider the China pride and stagnant self-complacency of mankind. This generation inclines a little to congratulate itself on being the last of an illustrious line; and in Boston and London and Paris and Rome, thinking of its long descent, it speaks of its progress in art and science and literature with satisfaction.... It is the good Adam contemplating his own virtue.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
