Famous quotes containing the word uplifted:

    Standing on the bare ground,—my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space,—all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part and particle of God.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ah! the uplifted sword
    Of his hand again my bosom! and oh, the broad
    Blade of his glance that asks me to applaud
    His coming!
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Man is more disposed to domination than freedom; and a structure of dominion not only gladdens the eye of the master who rears and protects it, but even its servants are uplifted by the thought that they are members of a whole, which rises high above the life and strength of single generations.
    Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)
