Famous quotes containing the words run and/or dans:
“The whole world is an omen and a sign. Why look so wistfully in a corner? Man is the Image of God. Why run after a ghost or a dream? The voice of divination resounds everywhere and runs to waste unheard, unregarded, as the mountains echo with the bleatings of cattle.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“The intellect longs for the delights of the non-intellect, that which is alive and beautiful dans sa stupidité.”
—Thomas Mann (18751955)
