Wears

Famous quotes containing the word wears:

    He who observes etiquette but objects to lying is like someone who dresses fashionably but wears no vest.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    It is not one man nor a million, but the spirit of liberty that must be preserved. The waves which dash upon the shore are, one by one, broken, but the ocean conquers nevertheless. It overwhelms the Armada, it wears out the rock. In like manner, whatever the struggle of individuals, the great cause will gather strength.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    A worm tells summer better than the clock,
    The slug’s a living calendar of days;
    What shall it tell me if a timeless insect
    Says the world wears away?
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
