Famous quotes containing the word works:

    ... no one who has not been an integral part of a slaveholding community, can have any idea of its abominations.... even were slavery no curse to its victims, the exercise of arbitrary power works such fearful ruin upon the hearts of slaveholders, that I should feel impelled to labor and pray for its overthrow with my last energies and latest breath.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)

    Night and Day ‘ve been tampered with,
    Every quality and pith
    Surcharged and sultry with a power
    That works its will on age and hour.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The noble simplicity in the works of nature only too often originates in the noble shortsightedness of him who observes it.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
