Famous quotes containing the words beetle and/or ground:

    Ere the bat hath flown
    His cloistered flight, ere to black Hecate’s summons
    The shard-born beetle with his drowsy hums
    Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done
    A deed of dreadful note.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Let us unite on the safe and sure ground of fact and experiment, and we can never err; yet better, we can never differ.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
