Famous quotes containing the words ice and/or arctic:

    Sole and self-commanded works,
    Fears not undermining days,
    Grows by decays,
    And, by the famous might that lurks
    In reaction and recoil,
    Makes flames to freeze, and ice to boil.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The chisel work of an enormous Glacier
    That braced his feet against the Arctic Pole.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
