Famous quotes containing the word shine:

    He may not shine with courtly graces,
    But yet, his kind, respectful air
    To woman, whatsoe’er her place is,
    It might be well if kings could share.
    So, for the chivalric true gentleman,
    Give me, I say, our own American.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    Then we shall rust in shade, or shine in strife,
    And fluctuate ‘twixt blind hopes and blind despairs,
    And fancy that we put forth all our life,
    And never know how with the soul it fares.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    The farmer stands well on the world. Plain in manners as in dress, he would not shine in palaces; he is absolutely unknown and inadmissible therein; living or dying, he never shall be heard of in them; yet the drawing-room heroes put down beside him would shrivel in his presence; he solid and unexpressive, they expressed to gold-leaf.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
