Famous quotes containing the word works:

    I cannot spare water or wine, Tobacco-leaf, or poppy, or rose;
    From the earth-poles to the line, All between that works or grows,
    Every thing is kin of mine.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    He never works and never bathes, and yet he appears well fed always.... Well, what does he live on then?
    Edward T. Lowe, and Frank Strayer. Sauer (William V. Mong)

    That man’s best works should be such bungling imitations of Nature’s infinite perfection, matters not much; but that he should make himself an imitation, this is the fact which Nature moans over, and deprecates beseechingly. Be spontaneous, be truthful, be free, and thus be individuals! is the song she sings through warbling birds, and whispering pines, and roaring waves, and screeching winds.
    Lydia M. Child (1802–1880)
