Famous quotes containing the word removed:

    And now, far removed from the loved habitation,
    The tear of regret will intrusively swell,
    As fancy reverts to my father’s plantation,
    And sighs for the bucket that hung in the well.
    Samuel Woodworth (1788–1842)

    Mortality, behold, and fear,
    What a change of flesh is here!
    Think how many royal bones
    Sleep within this heap of stones,
    Hence removed from beds of ease,
    Dainty fare, and what might please,
    Francis Beaumont (1584-1616)

    What matters it that man should have a little more knowledge of the universe? If he has it, he gets little higher. Is he not always infinitely removed from the end, and is not the duration of our life equally removed from eternity, even if it lasts ten years longer?
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
