Famous quotes containing the word gravity:

    Here I sit down to form characters. One I intend to be all goodness; All goodness he is. Another I intend to be all gravity; All gravity he is. Another Lady Gish; All Lady Gish she is. I am all the while absorbed in the character. It is not fair to say—I, identically I, am anywhere, while I keep within the character.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    Grown beyond nature now, soft food for worms,
    They lift frail heads in gravity and good faith.
    Derek Mahon (b. 1941)
