Famous quotes containing the words customs and/or house:

    We set up a certain aim, and put ourselves of our own will into the power of a certain current. Once having done that, we find ourselves committed to usages and customs which we had not before fully known, but from which we cannot depart without giving up the end which we have chosen. But we have no right, therefore, to claim that we are under the yoke of necessity. We might as well say that the man whom we see struggling vainly in the current of Niagara could not have helped jumping in.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)

    “... It’s a day’s work
    To empty one house of all household goods
    And fill another with ‘em fifteen miles away,
    Although you do no more than dump them down.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
