Tables

Famous quotes containing the word tables:

    Players, Sir! I look on them as no better than creatures set upon tables and joint stools to make faces and produce laughter, like dancing dogs.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    The word unto the prophet spoken
    Was writ on tables yet unbroken;
    The word by seers or sibyls told,
    In groves of oak, or fanes of gold,
    Still floats upon the morning wind,
    Still whispers to the willing mind.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All my life I have said, “Whatever happens there will always be tables and chairs”—and what a mistake.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)
