Famous quotes containing the word oaks:
“He that depends
Upon your favors swims with fins of lead,
And hews down oaks with rushes.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“He had the oaks for heating and for light.
He had a hen, he had a pig in sight.
He had a well, he had the rain to catch.
He had a ten-by-twenty garden patch.
Nor did he lack for common entertainment.
That I assume was what our passing train meant.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
