Famous quotes containing the word drop:

    It was the words “descended into Hades”
    That seemed too pagan to our liberal youth.
    You know they suffered from a general onslaught.
    And well, if they weren’t true why keep right on
    Saying them like the heathen? We could drop them.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The near explains the far. The drop is a small ocean. A man is related to all nature. This perception of the worth of the vulgar is fruitful in discoveries. Goethe, in this very thing the most modern of the moderns, has shown us, as none ever did, the genius of the ancients.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Learning is like rowing upstream; not to advance is to drop back.
