Famous quotes containing the word airy:

    But I hate things all fiction ... there should always be some foundation of fact for the most airy fabric—and pure invention is but the talent of a liar.
    GGeorge Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    He may have seen with his mechanic eyes
    A world without a meaning, and had room,
    Alone amid magnificence and doom,
    To build himself an airy monument
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    Up the airy mountain,
    Down the rushy glen,
    We daren’t go a-hunting
    For fear of little men.
