Famous quotes containing the words roof and/or span:

    Yet, Saxham, thou within thy gate
    Art of thyself so delicate,
    So full of native sweets that bless
    Thy roof with inward happiness,
    As neither from nor to thy store
    Winter takes aught, or spring adds more.
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    A tree that can fill the span of a man’s arms
    Grows from a downy tip;
    A terrace nine stories high
    Rises from hodfuls of earth;
    A journey of a thousand miles
    Starts from beneath one’s feet.
    Lao-Tzu (6th century B.C.)
