Thousand

Famous quotes containing the word thousand:

    Thou art the unanswered question;
    Couldst see thy proper eye,
    Alway it asketh, asketh;
    And each answer is a lie.
    So take thy quest through nature,
    It through thousand natures ply;
    Ask on, thou clothed eternity;
    Time is the false reply.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is easy to see that what is best written or done by genius in the world, was no man’s work but came by wide social labor, when a thousand wrought like one, sharing the same impulse.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It has been well said that tea is suggestive of a thousand wants, from which spring the decencies and luxuries of civilization.
    Agnes Repplier (1858–1950)
