Famous quotes containing the word procession:

    We want in every man a long logic; we cannot pardon the absence of it, but it must not be spoken. Logic is the procession or proportionate unfolding of the intuition; but its virtue is as silent method; the moment it would appear as propositions and have a separate value, it is worthless.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    By the bivouac’s fitful flame,
    A procession winding around me, solemn and sweet and slow
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    She is a procession no one can follow after
    But be like a little dog following a brass band.
    George Barker (b. 1913)
