Famous quotes containing the word heavily:

    Progress everywhere today does seem to come so very heavily disguised as Chaos.
    Joyce Grenfell (1910–1979)

    This is of the loon—I do not mean its laugh, but its looning,—is a long-drawn call, as it were, sometimes singularly human to my ear,—hoo-hoo-ooooo, like the hallooing of a man on a very high key, having thrown his voice into his head. I have heard a sound exactly like it when breathing heavily through my own nostrils, half awake at ten at night, suggesting my affinity to the loon; as if its language were but a dialect of my own, after all.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Down went the owners—greedy men whom hope of gain allured:
    Oh, dry the starting tear, for they were heavily insured.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
