Famous quotes containing the word centuries:

    Even in the centuries which appear to us to be the most monstrous and foolish, the immortal appetite for beauty has always found satisfaction.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    In the two centuries that have passed since 1776, millions upon millions of Americans have worked and taken up arms, when necessary, to make [the American] dream a reality. We can be proud of what they have accomplished. Today, we are the world’s oldest republic. We are at peace. Our nation and our way of life endure. And we are free.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    Through centuries he lived in poverty.
    God only was his only elegance.
    Then generation by generation he grew
    Stronger and freer, a little better off.
    He lived each life because, if it was bad,
    He said a good life would be possible.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
