Famous quotes containing the words year and/or yonder:

    An ordinary man will work every day for a year at shoveling dirt to support his body, or a family of bodies; but he is an extraordinary man who will work a whole day in a year for the support of his soul. Even the priests, men of God, so called, for the most part confess that they work for the support of the body.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Romeo. Lady, by yonder blessed moon I vow,
    That tips with silver all these fruit tree tops—
    Juliet. O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon,
    That monthly changes in her circled orb,
    Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
