Famous quotes containing the words head and/or beam:
“All men are partially buried in the grave of custom, and of some we see only the crown of the head above ground. Better are the physically dead, for they more lively rot. Even virtue is no longer such if it be stagnant. A mans life should be constantly as fresh as this river. It should be the same channel, but a new water every instant.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”
—Bible: New Testament Jesus, in Matthew, 7:3.
From the Sermon on the Mount.
