Famous quotes containing the word reap:

    The daughter of debate, that eke discord doth sow,
    Shall reap no gain where former rule hath taught still peace to
    No foreign banished wight shall anchor in this port;
    Our realm it brooks no stranger’s force, let them elsewhere resort.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    Like a tale of little meaning though the words are strong;
    Chanted from an ill-used race of men that cleave the soil,
    Sow the seed, and reap the harvest with enduring toil,
    Storing yearly little dues of wheat, and wine and oil;
    Till they perish and they suffer—some, ‘tis
    whispered—down in hell
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Do good, reap good; do evil, reap evil.
    Chinese proverb.
