Famous quotes containing the word earthly:

    I know myself now, and I feel within me
    A peace above all earthly dignities,
    A still and quiet conscience.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    An earthly dog of the carriage breed;
    Who, having failed of the modern speed,
    Now asked asylum and I was stirred
    To be the one so dog-preferred.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The man possessed of a dollar, feels himself to be not merely one hundred cents richer, but also one hundred cents better, than the man who is penniless; so on through all the gradations of earthly possessions—the estimate of our own moral and political importance swelling always in a ratio exactly proportionate to the growth of our purse.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
