Famous quotes containing the words notable, compact and/or disc:

    In one notable instance, where the United States Army and a hundred years of persuasion failed, a highway has succeeded. The Seminole Indians surrendered to the Tamiami Trail. From the Everglades the remnants of this race emerged, soon after the trail was built, to set up their palm-thatched villages along the road and to hoist tribal flags as a lure to passing motorists.
    —For the State of Florida, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    What compact mean you to have with us?
    Will you be pricked in number of our friends,
    Or shall we on, and not depend on you?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    “What,” it will be questioned, “When the sun rises, do you not see a round disc of fire somewhat like a guinea?” O no, no, I see an innumerable company of the heavenly host crying “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty.”
    William Blake (1757–1827)
