Famous quotes containing the word foot:

    To introduce a new play only six weeks after another has been banned is also a way to speak one’s piece to the government. It proves that art and liberty can grow back in one night under the clumsy foot which crushes them.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    When I visit again some haunt of my youth, I am glad to find that nature wears so well. The landscape is indeed something real, and solid, and sincere, and I have not put my foot through it yet.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For forty days, for forty nights
    Jesus put one foot in front of the other
    and the man he carried,
    if it was a man,
    became heavier and heavier.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
