Received

Famous quotes containing the word received:

    Whoever can discern truth has received his commission from a higher source than the chiefest justice in the world who can discern only law. He finds himself constituted judge of the judge. Strange that it should be necessary to state such simple truths!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    To speak critically, I never received more than one or two letters in my life—I wrote this some years ago—that were worth the postage.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “Interesting, but futile,” said his diary,
    Where day by day his movements were recorded
    And nothing but his loves received inquiry....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
