Famous quotes containing the word fibre:
“You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.

Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)

—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“In the man whose childhood has known caresses and kindness, there is always a fibre of memory that can be touched by gentle issues.”
