Largest

Famous quotes containing the word largest:

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Lydia Hoyt Farmer (1842–1903)

    He was the man who of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul.... He needed not the spectacles of books to read Nature; he looked inwards, and found her there.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)
