Famous quotes containing the words opening of, rich and/or opening:

    The opening of large tracts by the ice-cutters commonly causes a pond to break up earlier; for the water, agitated by the wind, even in cold weather, wears away the surrounding ice.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Carlyle’s works, it is true, have not the stereotyped success which we call classic. They are a rich but inexpensive entertainment, at which we are not concerned lest the host has strained or impoverished himself to feed his guests. It is not the most lasting word, nor the loftiest wisdom, but rather the word which comes last.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Nay, be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
