Famous quotes containing the word string:

    The most perfect expression of human behavior is a string quartet.
    Jeffrey Tate (b. 1943)

    The string quartet plays for itself,
    gently, gently, sleeves and waxy bows.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    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)
