Famous quotes containing the words graham and/or maria:

    Scatter my ashes, strew them in the air:
    Lord since thou know’st where all these atoms are,
    I’m hopeful thou’lt recover once my dust,
    And confident thou’lt raise me with the just.
    —James Graham Marquess of Montrose (1612–1650)

    Just as language has no longer anything in common with the thing it names, so the movements of most of the people who live in cities have lost their connexion with the earth; they hang, as it were, in the air, hover in all directions, and find no place where they can settle.
    —Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)
