Famous quotes containing the words ages and/or silver:

    We, in the ages lying
    In the buried past of the earth,
    Built Nineveh with our sighing,
    And Babel itself with our mirth;
    —Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy (1844–1881)

    A black pall, you know, with a silver cross on it, or R.I.P.—requiescat in pace—you know. That seems to me the most beautiful expression—I like it much better than ‘He is a jolly good fellow,’ which is simply rowdy.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
