Famous quotes containing the word rushing:

    Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river,
    That sweeps along to the mighty sea;
    James Clarence Mangan (1803–1849)

    The rushing Pequod, freighted with savages, laden with fire, and burning a corpse, and plunging into that blackness of darkness, seemed the material counterpart of her monomaniac commander’s soul.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The illimitable, silent, never-resting thing called Time, rolling, rushing on, swift, silent, like an all-embracing ocean- tide, on which we and all the universe swim like exhalations, like apparitions which are, and then are not: this is forever very literally a miracle; a thing to strike us dumb, for we have no word to speak about it.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)
