Famous quotes containing the words star and/or gold:

    Exhaust them, wrestle with them, let them not go until their blessing be won, and, after a short season, the dismay will be overpast, the excess of influence withdrawn, and they will be no longer an alarming meteor, but one more brighter star shining serenely in your heaven, and blending its light with all your day.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    “The idols have seen lots of poverty,
    Snakes and gold and lice,
    But not the truth....”
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
