Rivers

Famous quotes containing the word rivers:

    Thank God we’re living in a country where the sky’s the limit, the stores are open late and you can shop in bed thanks to television.

    Poor shad! where is thy redress? When Nature gave thee instinct, gave she thee the heart to bear thy fate? Still wandering the sea in thy scaly armor to inquire humbly at the mouths of rivers if man has perchance left them free for thee to enter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As for evildoers, for them awaits a painful chastisement;
    but for those who believe, and do deeds
    of righteousness, they shall be admitted
    to gardens underneath which rivers flow,
    therein dwelling forever,
    by the leave of their Lord, their greeting
    therein: “Peace!”
    Qur’An. Abraham 14:28 (ed. Arthur J. Arberry, 1955)
