Famous quotes containing the word stretched:

    Hard by the lilied Nile I saw
    A duskish river dragon stretched along.
    The brown habergeon of his limbs enamelled
    With sanguine alamandines and rainy pearl:
    And on his back there lay a young one sleeping,
    No bigger than a mouse;
    Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803–1849)

    Old men who never cheated, never doubted,
    Communicated monthly, sit and stare
    At the new suburb stretched beyond the run-way
    Where a young man lands hatless from the air.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)

    It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites—opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity—where energies flow smoothly in one direction—there will be much doing but no music.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
