Famous quotes containing the word closely:

    Follow your genius closely enough, and it will not fail to show you a fresh prospect every hour.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Let us together closely lie, and kisse,
    There is no labour, nor no shame in this;
    This hath pleas’d, doth please, and long will please; never
    Can this decay, but is beginning ever.
    Petronius Arbiter (d.A.D. 66)

    We should always remember that the work of art is invariably the creation of a new world, so that the first thing we should do is to study that new world as closely as possible, approaching it as something brand new, having no obvious connection with the worlds we already know. When this new world has been closely studied, then and only then let us examine its links with other worlds, other branches of knowledge.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
