Famous quotes containing the words days and/or named:

    If ever a man and his wife, or a man and his mistress, who pass nights as well as days together, absolutely lay aside all good breeding, their intimacy will soon degenerate into a coarse familiarity, infallibly productive of contempt or disgust.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Hast thou named all the birds without a gun?
    Loved the wood rose, and left it on its stalk?
    At rich men’s tables eaten bread and pulse?
    Unarmed, faced danger with a heart of trust?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
