Famous quotes containing the word bend:

    Nothing and no one can destroy the Chinese people. They are relentless survivors. They are the oldest civilized people on earth. Their civilization passes through phases but its basic characteristics remain the same. They yield, they bend to the wind, but they never break.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)

    Hail, Source of Being! Universal Soul
    Of heaven and earth! Essential Presence, hail!
    To thee I bend the knee; to thee my thoughts
    Continual climb, who with a master-hand
    Hast the great whole into perfection
    touched.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    He bends to the order of the seasons, the weather, the soils and crops, as the sails of a ship bend to the wind. He represents continuous hard labor, year in, year out, and small gains. He is a slow person, timed to Nature, and not to city watches. He takes the pace of seasons, plants and chemistry. Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
