Famous quotes containing the words line, heavy and/or rail:

    A line in long array, where they wind betwixt green islands;
    They take a serpentine course—their arms flash in the sun—hark to the musical clank;
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    There was a heavy power in her eyes which laid hold of his whole being, as if he had drunk some powerful drug. He had been feeling weak and done before. Now the life came back into him, he felt delivered from his own fretted, daily self.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    For this is the mark of a wise and upright man, not to rail against the gods in misfortune.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)
