Famous quotes containing the word single:

    many and many a day he thither went,
    And never lifted up a single stone.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    “What I want is a strange conjunction with you—” he said quietly; “Mnot meeting and mingling;Myou are quite right:Mbut an equilibrium, a pure balance of two single beings:Mas the stars balance each other.”
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    I, who cannot stay in my chamber for a single day without acquiring some rust,... confess that I am astonished at the power of endurance, to say nothing of the moral insensibility, of my neighbors who confine themselves to shops and offices the whole day for weeks and months, aye, and years almost together. I know not what manner of stuff they are of,—sitting there now at three o’clock in the afternoon, as if it were three o’clock in the morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
