Famous quotes containing the words heels and/or high:

    Thus grief still treads upon the heels of pleasure:
    Married in haste, we may repent at leisure.
    William Congreve (1670–1729)

    Life! Life! Don’t let us go to life for our fulfilment or our experience. It is a thing narrowed by circumstances, incoherent in its utterance, and without that fine correspondence of form and spirit which is the only thing that can satisfy the artistic and critical temperament. It makes us pay too high a price for its wares, and we purchase the meanest of its secrets at a cost that is monstrous and infinite.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
