Famous quotes containing the word plays:

    The hare grows old as she plays in the sun
    And gazes around her with eyes of brightness;
    Before the swift things that she dreamed of were done
    She limps along in an aged whiteness....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The plays of children are nonsense, but very educative nonsense. So it is with the largest and solemnest things, with commerce, government, church, marriage, and so with the history of every man’s bread, and the ways by which he is to come by it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In all the wide gamut of human experience, nothing plays so important a part as faith.... Faith that is as broad as the heavens and as wide as the earth. Faith that comprehends in its vast sympathies everything human as well as divine, and carries one with the swift sure wings of the angels directly to his goal.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
