Famous quotes containing the word vacant:

    Wipe your hand across your mouth, and laugh;
    The worlds revolve like ancient women
    Gathering fuel in vacant lots.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    In that sweet mood when pleasure loves to pay
    Tribute to ease; and, of its joy secure,
    The heart luxuriates with indifferent things,
    Wasting its kindliness on stocks and stones,
    And on the vacant air.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Every time I bestow a vacant office I make a hundred discontented persons and one ingrate.
    Louis XIV (1638–1715)
