Famous quotes containing the words falling and/or short:
“New ideas come into this world somewhat like falling meteors, with a flash and an explosion, and perhaps somebodys castle-roof perforated.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“When much intercourse with a friend has supplied us with a standard of excellence, and has increased our respect for the resources of God who thus sends a real person to outgo our ideal; when he has, moreover, become an object of thought, and, whilst his character retains all its unconscious effect, is converted in the mind into solid and sweet wisdom,it is a sign to us that his office is closing, and he is commonly withdrawn from our sight in a short time.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
