Famous quotes containing the words length and/or variable:

    It was inspiriting to hear the regular dip of the paddles, as if they were our fins or flippers, and to realize that we were at length fairly embarked.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Along the shore of silver streaming Thames,
    Whose rutty bank, the which his river hems,
    Was painted all with variable flowers,
    Edmund Spenser (1552?–1599)
