Sweat

Famous quotes containing the word sweat:

    They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
    They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
    They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
    Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
    Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    “Although I’d lie lapped up in linen
    A deal I’d sweat and little earn
    If I should live as live the neighbours,”
    Cried the beggar, Billy Byrne....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
