Famous quotes containing the word dive:

    All we who prefer to live
    Have a little whistle we give,
    And flash, at the least alarm
    We dive down under the farm.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    If you chance to live and move and have your being in that thin stratum in which the events that make the news transpire,—thinner than the paper on which it is printed,—then these things will fill the world for you; but if you soar above or dive below that plane, you cannot remember nor be reminded of them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I have no time to read newspapers. If you chance to live and move and have your being in that thin stratum in which the events which make the news transpire—thinner than the paper on which it is printed—then these things will fill the world for you; but if you soar above or dive below that plane, you cannot remember nor be reminded of them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
