Famous quotes containing the word roughly:
“What comes over a man, is it soul or mind
That to no limits and bounds he can stay confined?
You would say his ambition was to extend the reach
Clear to the Arctic of every living kind.
Why is his nature forever so hard to teach
That though there is no fixed line between wrong and right,
There are roughly zones whose laws must be obeyed?”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“With veins rolling roughly over quick hands
They have many clean words to say.
My grandmothers were strong.
Why am I not as they?”
—Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
“Difficulty, my brethren, is the nurse of greatnessa harsh nurse, who roughly rocks her foster-children into strength and athletic proportion.”
—William Cullen Bryant (17941878)
