Table

Famous quotes containing the word table:

    When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
    When our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
    Come live, and be merry, and join with me
    To sing the sweet chorus of ‘Ha, ha, he!’
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    When you got to the table you couldn’t go right to eating, but you had to wait for the widow to tuck down her head and grumble a little over the victuals, though there warn’t really anything the matter with them. That is, nothing only everything was cooked by itself. In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 22:27.
