Famous quotes containing the words shoulders and/or wide:

    I have often inquired of myself, what great principle or idea it was that kept this Confederacy so long together. It was not the mere matter of the separation of the colonies from the mother land; but something in that Declaration giving liberty, not alone to the people of this country, but hope to the world for all future time. It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)
