Strong Bid

Famous quotes containing the words strong and/or bid:

    All conservatives are such from personal defects. They have been effeminated by position or nature, born halt and blind, through luxury of their parents, and can only, like invalids, act on the defensive. But strong natures, backwoodsmen, New Hampshire giants, Napoleons, Burkes, Broughams, Websters, Kossuths, are inevitable patriots, until their life ebbs, and their defects and gout, palsy and money, warp them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Onely a little more
    I have to write,
    Then I’ll give o’er,
    And bid the world Good-night.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
