Famous quotes containing the words valley and/or nile:

    To be seventy years old is like climbing the Alps. You reach a snow-crowned summit, and see behind you the deep valley stretching miles and miles away, and before you other summits higher and whiter, which you may have strength to climb, or may not.

    No bigger than a mouse;
    Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803–1849)
