Famous quotes containing the word load:

    To watch another carrying a load requires no exertion.
    Chinese proverb.

    Men so noble,
    However faulty, yet should find respect
    For what they have been. ‘Tis a cruelty
    To load a falling man.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The only human beings I have thoroughly admired and respected in the world have been those who carried the load of the world with a smile, and who, in the face of anxieties that would have knocked me clean out, never showed a tremor. Such men and women end by owning us, soul and body, and our allegiance can never be shaken. We are only too glad to be owned. Religion is nothing but this.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
