Famous quotes containing the word ground:

    The poet is like the prince of the clouds
    Who haunts the tempest and laughs at the archer;
    Exiled on the ground in the midst of jeers,
    His giant’s wings prevent him from walking.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard,
    The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky,
    Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard;
    Enough that he heard it once; we shall hear it by and by.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
