Famous quotes containing the word arms:

    Even though I had let them choose their own socks since babyhood, I was only beginning to learn to trust their adult judgment.. . . I had a sensation very much like the moment in an airplane when you realize that even if you stop holding the plane up by gripping the arms of your seat until your knuckles show white, the plane will stay up by itself. . . . To detach myself from my children . . . I had to achieve a condition which might be called loving objectivity.
    —Anonymous Parent of Adult Children. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 5 (1978)

    Shall the Spring dawn, and she still clad in smiles,
    And with an unscathed brow,
    Rest in the strong arms of her palm-crowned isles,
    As fair and free as now?

    We know not; in the temple of the Fates
    God has inscribed her doom;
    And, all untroubled in her faith, she waits
    The triumph or the tomb.
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)

    The sturdy Irish arms that do the work are of more worth than oak or maple. Methinks I could look with equanimity upon a long street of Irish cabins, and pigs and children reveling in the genial Concord dirt; and I should still find my Walden Wood and Fair Haven in their tanned and happy faces.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
