Wake Forest Beat

Famous quotes containing the words wake, forest and/or beat:

    What if we wake one shimmering morning to
    Hear the fierce hammering
    Of his firm knuckles
    Hard on the door?
    Shall we not shudder?
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    What is most striking in the Maine wilderness is the continuousness of the forest, with fewer open intervals or glades than you had imagined. Except the few burnt lands, the narrow intervals on the rivers, the bare tops of the high mountains, and the lakes and streams, the forest is uninterrupted.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The anti-suffragist talk of sheltering women from the fierce storms of life is a lot of cant. I have no patience with it. These storms beat on woman just as fiercely as they do on man, and she is not trained to defend herself against them.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
