Famous quotes containing the word named:

    Methinks it would be some advantage to philosophy if men were named merely in the gross, as they are known. It would be necessary only to know the genus and perhaps the race or variety, to know the individual. We are not prepared to believe that every private soldier in a Roman army had a name of his own,—because we have not supposed that he had a character of his own.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    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)

    With ebb and flood from the remote sea-tides
    Vague-sounding through the City’s sleepless sleep,
    Is named the River of the Suicides;
    James Thomson (1834–1882)
