Famous quotes containing the words day and/or present:
“The shepherd is the brain behind the dogs brain,
But his control of dog, like dogs of sheep
Is never absolutethats the beauty of it.”
—Cecil Day Lewis (19041972)
“The present war having so long cut off all communication with Great-Britain, we are not able to make a fair estimate of the state of science in that country. The spirit in which she wages war is the only sample before our eyes, and that does not seem the legitimate offspring either of science or of civilization.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
