Famous quotes containing the words david and/or robinson:

    However, our fates at least are social. Our courses do not diverge; but as the web of destiny is woven it is fulled, and we are cast more and more into the centre. Men naturally, though feebly, seek this alliance, and their actions faintly foretell it.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There was not much that was ahead of him,
    And there was nothing in the town below—
    Where strangers would have shut the many doors
    That many friends had opened long ago.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
