Famous quotes containing the word host:

    The rule for hospitality and Irish “help,” is, to have the same dinner every day throughout the year. At last, Mrs. O’Shaughnessy learns to cook it to a nicety, the host learns to carve it, and the guests are well served.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Thrust, my daughter or son, to escape, there is none, none, none,
    Nor when all ponderous heaven’s host of waters breaks.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Carlyle’s works, it is true, have not the stereotyped success which we call classic. They are a rich but inexpensive entertainment, at which we are not concerned lest the host has strained or impoverished himself to feed his guests. It is not the most lasting word, nor the loftiest wisdom, but rather the word which comes last.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
