Hands

Famous quotes containing the word hands:

    When young one is confident to be able to build palaces for mankind, but when the time comes one has one’s hands full just to be able to remove their trash.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    and a man climbing
    must scrape his knees, and bring
    the grip of his hands into play. The cut stone
    consoles his groping feet. Wings brush past him.
    The poem ascends.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    To me the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching Man to regard himself as an experiment in the realization of God, to regard his hands as God’s hand, his brain as God’s brain, his purpose as God’s purpose. He must regard God as a helpless Longing, which longed him into existence by its desperate need for an executive organ.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
