Usage examples for Mounts

But over each black hour has hung Forlorn this star of knowledge: The path of pain too great to be endured Leads always unto peace; And when the granite road of anguish mounts Up and still up to its one ultimate And dizzy height of torture, Softly it dips and meets The valley of endless rest!

Famous quotes with Mounts

  • Fool that I was, upon my eagle's wings I bore this wren, till I was tired with soaring, and now he mounts above me.
    John Dryden
  • The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider... the riders contend for its possession.
    Martin Luther
  • No man with a touch of heart disease should ever back his mounts.
    Isaac Murphy
  • Climbing the bole of the tree, a man clings with all his arms and legs, and lays hold of every knob and sliver. When he mounts amongst the branches, it should be with a more easy alacrity. A man will often be apt at the one operation, yet awkward at the other. Nor is it, indeed, common to meet with a man of such a character as can be carried from a low condition of life through successive ascents, with an aptitude for every condition into which he passes; and thus it is that men who rise well will often stand infirmly. But for want of due consideration being given to the nature of men and circumstances, it is a usual thing to hear, not only regret but surprise expressed, when a man who has attained an elevated position in life exhibits in that position those very defects of character through which he is there.
    Henry Taylor
  • This dead of midnight is the noon of thought, And Wisdom mounts her zenith with the stars.
    Anna Letitia Barbauld
