Famous quotes containing the words seventh day, seventh and/or day:

    Thus we steadily worship Mammon, both school and state and church, and on the seventh day curse God with a tintamar from one end of the Union to the other.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    My bangles left.
    My best friends, tears,
    went on forever.
    My self-control
    wouldn’t sit still for a minute.
    My mind made itself up
    to go on ahead.
    When my man
    made up his mind to go,
    everything else went,
    just like him.
    if you must go, too,
    then don’t forsake
    your entourage of friends.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    The guided missiles,
    The black-and-white angels follow each quirk and jink of
    The evasive sheep, play grandmother’s-steps behind them,
    Freeze to the ground, or leap to head off a straggler
    —Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)
