Van Nest

Famous quotes containing the words van and/or nest:

    ‘Ouch’ is not independent of social training. One has only to prick a foreigner to appreciate that it is an English word.
    —Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    Without, the frost, the blinding snow,
    The storm-wind’s moody madness—
    Within, the firelight’s ruddy glow,
    And childhood’s nest of gladness.
    The magic words shall hold thee fast:
    Thou shalt not heed the raving blast.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
