Famous quotes containing the words futurity and/or kentucky:

    The gigantic shadows which futurity casts upon the present.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    He believes without reservation that Kentucky is the garden spot of the world, and is ready to dispute with anyone who questions his claim. In his enthusiasm for his State he compares with the Methodist preacher whom Timothy Flint heard tell a congregation that “Heaven is a Kentucky of a place.”
    —For the State of Kentucky, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
