Famous quotes containing the words foot and/or regiment:

    Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor s house, otherwise the neighbor will become weary of you and hate you.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 25:17.

    Simplicity of life, even the barest, is not a misery, but the very foundation of refinement; a sanded floor and whitewashed walls and the green trees, and flowery meads, and living waters outside; or a grimy palace amid the same with a regiment of housemaids always working to smear the dirt together so that it may be unnoticed; which, think you, is the most refined, the most fit for a gentleman of those two dwellings?
    William Morris (1834–1896)
