Famous quotes containing the word spending:

    The city is always recruited from the country. The men in cities who are the centres of energy, the driving-wheels of trade, politics or practical arts, and the women of beauty and genius, are the children or grandchildren of farmers, and are spending the energies which their fathers’ hardy, silent life accumulated in frosty furrows in poverty, necessity and darkness.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Poor Henry, he’s spending eternity wandering round and round a stately park and the fence is just too high for him to peep over and they’re having tea just too far away for him to hear what the countess is saying.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)

    We should meet each morning, as from foreign countries, and spending the day together, should depart at night, as into foreign countries.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
