Famous quotes containing the words land, edward and/or vii:

    The land is the appointed remedy for whatever is false and fantastic in our culture. The continent we inhabit is to be physic and food for our mind, as well as our body. The land, with its tranquilizing, sanative influences, is to repair the errors of a scholastic and traditional education, and bring us to just relations with men and things.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I’ve learned one thing about life. We’re a good deal like that ball, dancing on the fountain. We know as little about the forces that move us, and move the world around us, as that empty ball does.
    Ardel Wray, Edward Dien, and Jacques Tourneur. Dr. Galbraith(James Bell)

    I have loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore I die in exile.
    —Pope Gregory VII (c. 1020–1085)
