Famous quotes containing the word spires:

    A transition from an author’s books to his conversation, is too often like an entrance into a large city, after a distant prospect. Remotely, we see nothing but spires of temples, and turrets of palaces, and imagine it the residence of splendor, grandeur, and magnificence; but, when we have passed the gates, we find it perplexed with narrow passages, disgraced with despicable cottages, embarrassed with obstructions, and clouded with smoke.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    The eastern light our spires touch at morning,
    The light that slants upon our western doors at evening,
    The twilight over stagnant pools at batflight,
    Moon light and star light, owl and moth light,
    Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade.
    O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    There stood the purple spires with no breath of air
    Nor headlong bee
    To disturb their perfect poise the livelong day
    ‘Neath the alder tree.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
