Famous quotes containing the word sweat:

    In the early days of the world, the Almighty said to the first of our race “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread”; and since then, if we except the light and the air of heaven, no good thing has been, or can be enjoyed by us, without having first cost labour.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
    They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
    They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
    Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
    Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    When my face turned toward his,
    I averted it
    and looked at my feet.
    When my ears clamored
    to hear his talk,
    I stopped them.
    When my cheeks broke out
    in sweat and goosebumps,
    I covered them with my hands.
    But Friends,
    when the seams of my bodice
    burst in a hundred places,
    what could I do?
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
