Play Calling

Famous quotes containing the words play and/or calling:

    When I began to have a fire at evening, before I plastered my house, the chimney carried smoke particularly well, because of the numerous chinks between the boards.... Should not every apartment in which man dwells be lofty enough to create some obscurity overhead, where flickering shadows may play at evening about the rafters? These forms are more agreeable to the fancy and imagination than fresco paintings or other the most expensive furniture.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay,
    Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away,
    Gone from the earth to a better land I know,
    I hear their gentle voices calling “Old Black Joe.”
    Stephen Collins Foster (1826–1864)
