Opened

Famous quotes containing the word opened:

    There was not much that was ahead of him,
    And there was nothing in the town below—
    Where strangers would have shut the many doors
    That many friends had opened long ago.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    The debt was the most sacred obligation incurred during the war. It was by no means the largest in amount. We do not haggle with those who lent us money. We should not with those who gave health and blood and life. If doors are opened to fraud, contrive to close them. But don’t deny the obligation, or scold at its performance.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    I have just opened Bacon’s “Advancement of Learning” for the first time, which I read with great delight. It is more like what Scott’s novels were than anything.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
