Famous quotes containing the words plough and/or starry:

    We grant no dukedoms to the few,
    We hold like rights and shall;—
    Equal on Sunday in the pew,
    On Monday in the mall.
    For what avail the plough or sail,
    Or land or life, if freedom fail?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    each new victim treads unfalteringly
    The never altered circuit of his fate,
    Bringing twelve peers as witness
    Both to his starry rise and starry fall.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
