Famous quotes containing the word hands:

    A radical is a man with both feet firmly planted in the air. A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs, who, however, has never learned to walk forward. A reactionary is a somnambulist walking backwards. A liberal is a man who uses his legs and his hands at the behest ... of his head.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    “... But here there is nor law nor rule,
    Nor have hands held a weary tool;
    And here there is nor Change nor Death,
    But only kind and merry breath,
    For joy is God and God is joy.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Come now, let us go and be dumb. Let us sit with our hands on our mouths, a long, austere, Pythagorean lustrum. Let us live in corners, and do chores, and suffer, and weep, and drudge, with eyes and hearts that love the Lord. Silence, seclusion, austerity, may pierce deep into the grandeur and secret of our being, and so diving, bring up out of secular darkness, the sublimities of the moral constitution.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
