Famous quotes containing the words open, festival and/or invitation:

    Why the jailer does not leave open his prison doors,—why the judge does not dismiss his case,—why the preacher does not dismiss his congregation! It is because they do not obey the hint God gives them, nor accept the pardon which he freely offers to all.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
