Famous quotes containing the word rolls:
“in the mind of man,
A motion and a spirit, that impels
All thinking things, all objects of all thought,
And rolls through all things.”

“The figured wheel rolls through shopping malls and prisons,
Over farms, small and immense, and the rotten little downtowns.”
—Robert Pinsky (b. 1940)
“And this, because the heart in thee is the heart of all; not a valve, not a wall, not an intersection is there anywhere in nature, but one blood rolls uninterruptedly an endless circulation through all men, as the water of the globe is all one sea, and, truly seen, its tide is one.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
