Famous quotes containing the word bow:

    And long shall timorous fancy see
    The painted chief, and pointed spear,
    And Reason’s self shall bow the knee
    To shadows and delusions here.
    Philip Freneau (1752–1832)

    We are like horses who hurt themselves as soon as they pull on their bits—and we bow our heads. We even lose consciousness of the situation, we just submit. Any re-awakening of thought is then painful.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    ...I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name.
    Bible: New Testament, Ephesians 3:14-15.
