Famous quotes containing the word held:

    Master and Doctor are my titles;
    For ten years now, without repose,
    I’ve held my erudite recitals
    And led my pupils by the nose.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    You danced with me never saying a word.
    Instead the serpent spoke as you held me close.
    The serpent, that mocker, woke up and pressed against me
    like a great god and we bent together
    like two lonely swans.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    A regular council was held with the Indians, who had come in on their ponies, and speeches were made on both sides through an interpreter, quite in the described mode,—the Indians, as usual, having the advantage in point of truth and earnestness, and therefore of eloquence. The most prominent chief was named Little Crow. They were quite dissatisfied with the white man’s treatment of them, and probably have reason to be so.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
