Famous quotes containing the word strings:

    Bow, stubborn knees, and heart, with strings of steel,
    Be soft as sinews of the new-born babe!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    What drivel it all is!... A string of words called religion. Another string of words called philosophy. Half a dozen other strings called political ideals. And all the words either ambiguous or meaningless. And people getting so excited about them they’ll murder their neighbours for using a word they don’t happen to like. A word that probably doesn’t mean as much as a good belch. Just a noise without even the excuse of gas on the stomach.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    it was older sure than this year’s cutting,
    Or even last year’s or the year’s before.
    The wood was gray and the bark warping off it
    And the pile somewhat sunken. Clematis
    Had wound strings round and round it like a bundle.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
