Who is david thomson?

Famous quotes containing the words david and/or thomson:

    Some have asked if the stock of men could not be improved,—if they could not be bred as cattle. Let Love be purified, and all the rest will follow. A pure love is thus, indeed, the panacea for all the ills of the world.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The savage soul of game is up at once—
    The pack full-opening various, the shrill horn
    Resounded from the hills, the neighing steed
    Wild for the chase, and the loud hunter’s shout—
    O’er a weak, harmless, flying creature, all
    Mixed in mad tumult and discordant joy.
    —James Thomson (1700–1748)
