Famous quotes containing the word vacant:

    The worlds revolve like ancient women
    Gathering fuel in vacant lots.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
    Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me,
    Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words,
    Remembers me of all his gracious parts,
    Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form;
    Then have I reason to be fond of grief.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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)
