John W Wilcox

Famous quotes containing the words john w and/or wilcox:

    See the kind seed-receiving earth
    To every grain affords a birth:
    On her no showers unwelcome fall,
    Her willing womb retains ‘em all,
    And shall my Caelia be confined?
    No, live up to thy mighty mind,
    And be the mistress of Mankind!
    John Wilmot, 2d Earl Of Rochester (1647–1680)

    It’s the set of the soul that decides the goal,
    And not the storms or the strife.
    —Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850–1919)
