Famous quotes containing the word thousands:

    Oh, blank confusion! true epitome
    Of what the mighty city is herself,
    To thousands upon thousands of her sons,
    Living amid the same perpetual whirl
    Of trivial objects, melted and reduced
    To one identity, by differences
    That have no law, no meaning, and no end—
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Those who have ruled human destinies, like planets, for thousands of years, were not handsome men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Sport is the bloom and glow of a perfect health. The great will not condescend to take anything seriously; all must be as gay as the song of a canary, though it were the building of cities, or the eradication of old and foolish churches and nations, which have cumbered the earth long thousands of years.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
