Famous quotes containing the words gain and/or weight:

    The historian must have ... some conception of how men who are not historians behave. Otherwise he will move in a world of the dead. He can only gain that conception through personal experience, and he can only use his personal experiences when he is a genius.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    But I saw the little-Ant men as they ran
    Carrying the world’s weight of the world’s filth
    And the filth in the heart of Man—
    Compressed till those lusts and greeds had a greater heat
    than that of the Sun.
    Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964)
