Famous quotes containing the word bronze:

Our hearts shall fail us; come demanding
Whether there shall be lofty or long standing
When the bronze annals of the oak-tree close.”

“What will our children remember of us, ten, fifteen years from now? The mobile we bought or didnt buy? Or the tone in our voices, the look in our eyes, the enthusiasm for lifeand for themthat we felt? They, and we, will remember the spirit of things, not the letter. Those memories will go so deep that no one could measure it, capture it, bronze it, or put it in a scrapbook.”
