Stealing

Famous quotes containing the word stealing:

    In yonder Grave a Druid lies
    Where slowly winds the Stealing Wave!
    The Year’s best Sweets shall duteous rise
    To deck its Poet’s sylvan Grave!
    William Collins (1721–1759)

    As I came home through the woods with my string of fish, trailing my pole, it being now quite dark, I caught a glimpse of a woodchuck stealing across my path, and felt a strange thrill of savage delight, and was strongly tempted to seize and devour him raw; not that I was hungry then, except for that wildness which he represented.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The art of using moderate abilities to good advantage is a way of stealing the esteem of others, and often brings a man into greater reputation than does real merit.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
