Open

Famous quotes containing the word open:

    Rats!
    They fought the dogs and killed the cats,
    And bit the babies in the cradles,
    And ate the cheeses out of the vats,
    And licked the soup from the cooks’ own ladles,
    Split open the kegs of salted sprats,
    Made nests inside men’s Sunday hats,
    And even spoiled the women’s chats
    By drowning their speaking
    With shrieking and squeaking
    In fifty different sharps and flats.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of the prophets. He saw with an open eye the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it, and had his being there. Alone in all history he estimated the greatness of man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It will open a door through which fools and fanatics will pour in, and make the cause ridiculous.
    Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)
