Famous quotes containing the words jupiter, goat and/or infant:

    Few and signally blessed are those whom Jupiter has destined to be cabbage-planters. For they’ve always one foot on the ground and the other not far from it. Anyone is welcome to argue about felicity and supreme happiness. But the man who plants cabbages I now positively declare to be the happiest of mortals.
    François Rabelais (c. 1494–1553)

    There are some things, my dear Fisher, which do not bear much looking into. You undoubtedly have heard of the Siberian goat herder who tried to discover the true nature of the sun. He stared up at the heavenly body until it made him blind. There are many things of this sort, including love and death.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)

    So runs my dream: but what am I?
    An infant crying in the night;
    An infant crying for the light:
    And with no language but a cry.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
