Famous quotes containing the word hold:

    If you can hold your present position, we shall “hive” the enemy yet.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    There is a plain distinction to be made betwixt pleasure and happiness. For tho’ there can be no happiness without pleasure—yet the converse of the proposition will not hold true.—We are so made, that from the common gratifications of our appetites, and the impressions of a thousand objects, we snatch the one, like a transient gleam, without being suffered to taste the other.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Everybody knows there is no fineness or accuracy of suppression; if you hold down one thing, you hold down the adjoining.
    Saul Bellow (b. 1915)
