Famous quotes containing the word thread:

    I often wish for the end of the wretched remnant of my life; and that wish is a rational one; but then the innate principle of self-preservation, wisely implanted in our natures, for obvious purposes, opposes that wish, and makes us endeavour to spin out our thread as long as we can, however decayed and rotten it may be.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    One sought not absolute truth. One sought only a spool on which to wind the thread of history without breaking it.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. It’s another thing, though, to hold up that cloth for inspection.
    John Gregory Brown (20th century)
