Famous quotes containing the word upper:

    The enemy are no match for us in a fair fight.... The young men ... of the upper class are kind-hearted, good-natured fellows, who are unfit as possible for the business they are in. They have courage but no endurance, enterprise, or energy. The lower class are cowardly, cunning, and lazy. The height of their ambition is to shoot a Yankee from some place of safety.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    But that beginning was wiped out in fear
    The day I swung suspended with the grapes,
    And was come after like Eurydice
    And brought down safely from the upper regions;
    And the life I live now’s an extra life
    I can waste as I please on whom I please.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    You doubt we read the stars on high,
    Nathless we read your fortunes true;
    The stars may hide in the upper sky,
    But without glass we fathom you.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
