Famous quotes containing the word roll:

    Rock ‘n’ roll is a combination of good ideas dried up by fads, terrible junk, hideous failings in taste and judgment, gullibility and manipulation, moments of unbelievable clarity and invention, pleasure, fun, vulgarity, excess, novelty and utter enervation.
    Greil Marcus (b. 1945)

    Lord, what a thoughtless wretch was I,
    To mourn, and murmur and repine,
    To see the wicked placed on high,
    In pride and robes of honor shine.
    But oh, their end, their dreadful end,
    Thy sanctuary taught me so,
    On slipp’ry rocks I see them stand,
    And fiery billows roll below.
    Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

    Roll on, thou ball, roll on!
    Through pathless realms of Space
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
