Famous quotes containing the words harry and/or potter:
“It is now many years that men have resorted to the forest for fuel and the materials of the arts: the New Englander and the New Hollander, the Parisian and the Celt, the farmer and Robin Hood, Goody Blake and Harry Gill; in most parts of the world, the prince and the peasant, the scholar and the savage, equally require still a few sticks from the forest to warm them and cook their food. Neither could I do without them.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“At present I feel like a caged animal, bound up by the luxury, comfort and respectability of my position. I cant get the training that I want without neglecting my duty.”
—Beatrice Potter Webb (18581943)
