Owns

Famous quotes containing the word owns:

    How the cold creeps as the fire dies at length
    How drifts are piled,
    Dooryard and road ungraded,
    Till even the comforting barn grows far away,
    And my heart owns a doubt
    Whether ‘tis in us to arise with day
    And save ourselves unaided.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The charming landscape which I saw this morning is indubitably made up of some twenty or thirty farms. Miller owns this field, Locke that, and Manning the woodland beyond. But none of them owns the landscape. There is property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all parts, that is, the poet. This is the best part of these men’s farms, yet to this their warranty-deeds give no title.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A creditor is worse than a slave-owner; for the master owns only your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
