Famous quotes containing the word stretch:

    Idleness and constancy fix the mind to what it finds easy and agreeable. This habit always confines and cramps up our knowledge; and no one has ever taken the trouble to stretch and carry his understanding as far as it could go.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    O but there is wisdom
    In what the sages said;
    But stretch that body for a while
    And lay down that head
    Till I have told the sages
    Where man is comforted.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    These Flemish pictures of old days;
    Sit with me by the homestead hearth,
    And stretch the hands of memory forth
    To warm them at the wood-fire’s blaze!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
