Famous quotes containing the words long and/or chain:

    To long for that which comes not. To lie a-bed and sleep not. To serve well and please not. To have a horse that goes not. To have a man obeys not. To lie in jail and hope not. To be sick and recover not. To lose one’s way and know not. To wait at door and enter not, and to have a friend we trust not: are ten such spites as hell hath not.
    John Florio (c. 1553–1625)

    It could not have come down to us so far,

    On the long bead chain of repeated birth,
    To be a bird while we are men on earth,
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
