Laid Threads

Famous quotes containing the words laid and/or threads:

    In matters of religion and matrimony I never give any advice; because I will not have anybody’s torments in this world or the next laid to my charge.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often compounded of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, “That is all there was!” But twist them all together and you have something tremendous.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
