Famous quotes containing the words meteor, air and/or force:

    The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
    And off a blossom in mid-air stands still.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    More beautiful and soft than any moth
    With burring furred antennae feeling its huge path
    Through dusk, the air liner with shut-off engines
    Glides over suburbs
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    Where the great force lies, there must be the sanction of peace.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
