Famous quotes containing the words high, areas, spans and/or flat:

    The most useful man in the most useful world, so long as only commodity was served, would remain unsatisfied. But, as fast as he sees beauty, life acquires a very high value.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In my writing I am acting as a map maker, an explorer of psychic areas ... a cosmonaut of inner space, and I see no point in exploring areas that have already been thoroughly surveyed.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    This is my playes last scene, here heavens appoint
    My pilgrimages last mile; and my race
    Idly, yet quickly runne, hath this last pace,
    My spans last inch, my minutes last point,
    And gluttonous death, will instantly unjoynt
    My body, and soule, and I shall sleepe a space,
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    But pardon, gentles all,
    The flat unraised spirits that hath dared
    On this unworthy scaffold to bring forth
    So great an object.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
