Famous quotes containing the words length and/or reign:

    What though the traveler tell us of the ruins of Egypt, are we so sick or idle that we must sacrifice our America and today to some man’s ill-remembered and indolent story? Carnac and Luxor are but names, or if their skeletons remain, still more desert sand and at length a wave of the Mediterranean Sea are needed to wash away the filth that attaches to their grandeur.

    Here reign the simplicity and purity of a primitive age, and a health and hope far remote from towns and cities.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
