I like a kid who holds nothing back. ~ Emmy Laybourne
Picquet Monument quotes by Emmy Laybourne
At last, in 1611, was made, under the auspices of King James, the famous King James version; and this is the great literary monument of the English language. ~ Lafcadio Hearn
Picquet Monument quotes by Lafcadio Hearn
Sitting here on the steps of the Supreme Court smoking weed, under the "Equal Justice Under Law" motto, staring into the stars, I've finally figured out what's wrong with Washington, D.C. It's that all the buildings are more or less the same height and there's absolutely no skyline, save for the Washington Monument touching the night sky like a giant middle finger to the world. ~ Paul Beatty
Picquet Monument quotes by Paul Beatty

I remember how I would say, "I will gather
These pieces together,
Any minute now I will make
A knife out of a cloud."
Even then the days
Went leaving their wounds behind them,
But, "Monument," I kept saying to the grave,
"I am still your legend."

There was another time
When our hands met and the clocks struck
And we lived on the point of a needle, like angels.

I have seen the spider's triumph
In the palm of my hand. Above
My grave, that thoroughfare,
There are words now that can bring
My eyes to my feet, tamed.
Beyond the trees wearing names that are not their own
The paths are growing like smoke.

The promises have gone,
Gone, gone, and they were here just now.
There is the sky where they laid their fish.
Soon it will be evening. ~ W.S. Merwin
Picquet Monument quotes by W.S. Merwin
Congress displayed contempt for the city's residents, yet it retained a fondness for buildings and parks. In 1900, the centennial of the federal government's move to Washington, many congressmen expressed frustration that the proud nation did not have a capital to rival London, Paris, and Berlin. The following year, Senator James McMillan of Michigan, chairman of the Senate District Committee, recruited architects Daniel Burnham and Charles McKim, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to propose a park system. The team, thereafter known as the McMillan Commission, emerged with a bold proposal in the City Beautiful tradition, based on the White City of Chicago's 1893 Columbian Exposition. Their plan reaffirmed L'Enfant's avenues as the best guide for the city's growth and emphasized the majesty of government by calling for symmetrical compositions of horizontal, neoclassical buildings of marble and white granite sitting amid wide lawns and reflecting pools. Eventually, the plan resulted in the remaking of the Mall as an open lawn, the construction of the Lincoln Memorial and Memorial Bridge across the Potomac, and the building of Burnham's Union Station. Commissioned in 1903, when the state of the art in automobiles and airplanes was represented by the curved-dash Olds and the Wright Flyer, the station served as a vast and gorgeous granite monument to rail transportation. ~ Zachary M. Schrag
Picquet Monument quotes by Zachary M. Schrag
The name Peace River itself is the monument of a successful effort on the part of the Company to bring about a better understanding between the Crees and the Beavers. ~ Ernest Thompson Seton
Picquet Monument quotes by Ernest Thompson Seton
Live a life as a monument to your soul. ~ Ayn Rand
Picquet Monument quotes by Ayn Rand
It is of the greatest consequence that the debt should ... be remoulded into such a shape as will bring the expenditure of the nation to a level with its income. Till this shall be accomplished, the finances of the United States will never wear proper countenance. Arrears of interest, continually accruing, will be as continual a monument, either of inability, or of ill faith and will not cease to have an evil influence on public credit. ~ Alexander Hamilton
Picquet Monument quotes by Alexander Hamilton
I think Bowe Bergdahl, if he deserted, is a hero - I think throughout history we should build monuments to the unknown deserters. ~ Bill Ayers
Picquet Monument quotes by Bill Ayers
I see no comfort in outliving one's friends, and remaining a mere monument of the times which are past. ~ Thomas Jefferson
Picquet Monument quotes by Thomas Jefferson
A monument of grace, A sinner saved by blood; The streams of love I trace Up to the Fountain, God; And in His sacred bosom see Eternal thoughts of Love to me. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Picquet Monument quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Man passes away; his name perishes from record and recollection; his history is as a tale that is told, and his very monument becomes a ruin. ~ Washington Irving
Picquet Monument quotes by Washington Irving
The Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument may be distant from our shores, but it will help us understand how healthy marine ecosystems work and how we can revive troubled seas closer to home. ~ Frances Beinecke
Picquet Monument quotes by Frances Beinecke
There was movement along the fringe of Chauncey's vision, and he snapped his head to the left. At first glance what appeared to be a large angel topping a nearby monument rose to full height. Neither stone nor marble, the boy had arms and legs. His torso was naked, his feet were bare, and peasant trousers hung low on his waist. He hopped down from the monument, the ends of his hair dripping rain. It slid down his face, which was dark as a Spaniard's. ~ Becca Fitzpatrick
Picquet Monument quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
Two months after marching through Boston,
half the regiment was dead;
at the dedication,
William James could almost hear the bronze Negroes breathe.
Their monument sticks like a fishbone
in the city's throat.
Its Colonel is as lean
as a compass-needle.
He has an angry wrenlike vigilance,
a greyhound's gently tautness;
he seems to wince at pleasure,
and suffocate for privacy.
He is out of bounds now. He rejoices in man's lovely,
peculiar power to choose life and die
when he leads his black soldiers to death,
he cannot bend his back. ~ Robert Lowell
Picquet Monument quotes by Robert Lowell
You [future first ladies] will feel that you are no longer clothing yourself, you are dressing a public monument. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Picquet Monument quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
Modern architects and engineers are still trying to understand how the ancient Greeks were able to build the Parthenon in ten years when the restoration of the monument has continued for more than three decades and is still not complete. What they have learned and shared along this arduous path of rediscovery is that the Greeks were highly skilled at building visual compensations into their structures. Columns were crafted and positioned to compensate for how the eye interprets what it sees at a distance. Subtle variances in the surface of platforms, columns, and colonnades provide the appearance of geometric proportion, whereas if they had worked from the perspective of a flat datum surface, the brain would interpret the results as being slightly skewed. ~ Christopher Dunn
Picquet Monument quotes by Christopher Dunn
And the story is told that a young woman taking an examination for a Communist party post was unsure of the answer to a question asking the inscription on a certain monument. She wrote the words of Marx quoted above and when the examination was over hurried to the monument to check. Reading the inscription "Religion is the opiate of the people," she fell to her knees, saying, "Thank God. ~ Roberson
Picquet Monument quotes by Roberson
I just want the days of my life to add up to something. The way every day of your life, the way it can just disappear in front of the television, Denny says he wants a rock to show for each day. Something tangible. Just one thing. A little monument to mark the end of each day. ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Picquet Monument quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
Within the shadows of honor, courage often walks in silence.
-Engraved on the monument Clay built ~ Lorraine Heath
Picquet Monument quotes by Lorraine Heath
All religions are ancient monuments to superstition, ignorance and ferocity. ~ Baron D'Holbach
Picquet Monument quotes by Baron D'Holbach
Whoever uplifts civilization is rich though he die penniless, and future generations will erect his monument. ~ Orison Swett Marden
Picquet Monument quotes by Orison Swett Marden
The things we take for granted. The things we never feel we'll lose. Not missing the water until the well runs dry, and hundreds more tired idioms and metaphors to build monument to the fact that I was drinking in every detail of Dominic's body like the precious thing it was, quenching the thirst of years with visions of flesh and beauty. It was impossible to believe, suddenly, that I had ever known beauty and excitement before. ~ Vee Hoffman
Picquet Monument quotes by Vee Hoffman
The absence of a monument can, in its own way, be something of a monument also. ~ Roger Zelazny
Picquet Monument quotes by Roger Zelazny
One of them, at least. Look at it." I look. "That is one straight-up, upstanding, powerful word. Unique, original, and kind of stealthy because it doesn't really sound like what it is. It's a word that surprises you and makes you think, Oh. All right then. It commands respect, but it's also modest. Not like 'monument' or 'tower.' " He shakes his head. "Pretentious bastards. ~ Jennifer Niven
Picquet Monument quotes by Jennifer Niven
So I dream nightly of an embarcation,
captains, captains,
iron passageways, cabin lights,
Brooklyn across the waters,
the great dull boat, visitors, farewells,
the blurred vast sea--
one trip a lifetime's loss or gain :

as Europe is my own imagination
--many shall see her,
many shall not--
though it's only the old familiar world
and not some abstract mystical dream.

And in a moment of previsioning sleep
I see that continent in rain,
black streets, old night, a
fading monument . . .

And a long journey unaccomplished
yet, on antique seas
rolling in gray barren dunes under
the world's waste of light
toward ports of childish geography
the rusty ship will
harbor in . . . ~ Allen Ginsberg
Picquet Monument quotes by Allen Ginsberg
But monument themselves memorials need. ~ George Crabbe
Picquet Monument quotes by George Crabbe
Why not laugh again, and let your joy be my monument? ~ Stephanie Roberts
Picquet Monument quotes by Stephanie Roberts
Sonnet CVII

Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul
Of the wide world, dreaming on things to come,
Can yet the lease of my true love control,
Suppos'd as forfeit to a confin'd doom.
The mortal moon hath her eclipse endur'd,
And the sad augurs mock their own presage;
Incertainties now crown themselves assur'd,
And peace proclaims olives of endless age.
Now with the drops of this most balmy time
My love looks fresh, and Death to me subscribes,
Since, spite of him, I'll live in this poor rhyme,
While he insults o'er dull and speechless tribes:
And thou in this shalt find thy monument,
When tyrants' crests and tombs of brass are spent. ~ William Shakespeare
Picquet Monument quotes by William Shakespeare
If I have done any honorable exploit, that is my monument; but if I have done none, all your statues will signify nothing. ~ Agesilaus II
Picquet Monument quotes by Agesilaus II
Sculpture may be almost anything: a monument, a statue, an old coin, a bas-relief, a portrait bust, a lifelong struggle against heavy odds. ~ Malvina Hoffman
Picquet Monument quotes by Malvina Hoffman
Being a painter myself ... whenever I could dispense with architectural precision, I indulged in the picturesque, in which case I sacrificed a few details when necessary in favor of an imposing effect that would give a monument its real character and also preserve the poetic charm that surrounds it. ~ Charles Negre
Picquet Monument quotes by Charles Negre
They can see the brave silhouette from almost anywhere in the District of Columbia and use it as a compass to locate other monuments and eventually to find their way out of the great, gray federal wilderness. ~ Hugh Sidey
Picquet Monument quotes by Hugh Sidey
Monuments are the grappling-irons that bind one generation to another ... ~ Joseph Joubert
Picquet Monument quotes by Joseph Joubert
I really do not care what the white world is doing. I care about black people building the monument on slavery. ~ Haile Gerima
Picquet Monument quotes by Haile Gerima
Their monument sticks like a fishbone in the city's throat. ~ Robert Lowell
Picquet Monument quotes by Robert Lowell
The San Gabriel monument expands our natural heritage, but there is more in need of safeguarding - extraordinary places like Utah's Greater Canyonlands. ~ Frances Beinecke
Picquet Monument quotes by Frances Beinecke
Contemplated as one grand whole, astronomy is the most beautiful monument of the human mind; the noblest record of its intelligence. ~ Carl Sagan
Picquet Monument quotes by Carl Sagan
Victims don't want to be proactive about changing - they want to be proactive about making sure that the person who hurt them pays. And so we spend our energy telling our sad stories rather than taking responsibility for our behavior. Thus we open the door of our hearts and welcome in the Trojan horse of bitterness. And it stands there, a monument, a constant reminder of a debt someone has yet to pay. Somebody owes us. ~ Andy Stanley
Picquet Monument quotes by Andy Stanley
Memory is the treasure house of the mind wherein the monuments thereof are kept and preserved. ~ Thomas Fuller
Picquet Monument quotes by Thomas Fuller
Kurt Gödel's achievement in modern logic is singular and monumental – indeed it is more than a monument, it is a landmark which will remain visible far in space and time. ... The subject of logic has certainly completely changed its nature and possibilities with Gödel's achievement." - John von Neumann ~ John Von Neumann
Picquet Monument quotes by John Von Neumann
Let me quote a few words by Dr. Chalmers: "Thousands of men breathe, move and live, pass off the stage of life, and are heard no more - Why? They do not partake of good in the world, and none were blessed by them; none could point to them as the means of their redemption; not a line they wrote, not a word they spoke could be recalled; and so they perished; their light went out in darkness, and they were not remembered more than insects of yesterday. Will you thus live and die, O man immortal? Live for something. Do good, and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storms of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love and mercy, on the hearts of the thousands you come in contact with year by year; you will never be forgotten. No, your name, your deeds will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven. ~ D.L. Moody
Picquet Monument quotes by D.L. Moody
Lets build a monument for the veto. Lets build a monument for impotence and incapacity. ~ Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Picquet Monument quotes by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Mama, don't forget to put a little monument on my tomb when I'm dead ~ Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich Of Russia
Picquet Monument quotes by Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich Of Russia
