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

    One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares, and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    There is ... but one response possible from us: Force, Force to the uttermost, Force without stint or limit, the righteous and triumphant Force which shall make Right the law of the world and cast every selfish dominion down in the dust.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Is that the Craig Jurgesen that Teddy Roosevelt gave you?... And you used it at San Juan Hill defending liberty. Now you want to destroy it.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    And ‘tis my faith that every flower
    Enjoys the air it breathes.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
