Famous quotes containing the words fountains and/or lava:

    No more be grieved at that which thou hast done,
    Roses have thorns, and silver fountains mud,
    Clouds and eclipses stain both moon and sun,
    And loathsome canker lives in sweetest bud.
    All men make faults, and even I in this,
    Authorizing thy trespass with compare,
    My self corrupting salving thy amiss,
    Excusing thy sins more than thy sins are:
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We walk on molten lava on which the claw of a fly or the fall of a hair makes its impression, which being received, the mass hardens to flint and retains every impression forevermore.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
