Famous quotes containing the words observatory and/or royal:

    Where there is an observatory and a telescope, we expect that any eyes will see new worlds at once.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    High from the summit of a craggy cliff,
    Hung o’er the deep, such as amazing frowns
    On utmost Kilda’s shore, whose lonely race
    Resign the setting sun to Indian worlds,
    The royal eagle draws his vigorous young
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
