Wrote

Famous quotes containing the word wrote:

    This is my letter to the World
    That never wrote to Me—
    The simple News that Nature told—
    With tender Majesty.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    GOETHE, raised o’er joy and strife,
    Drew the firm lines of Fate and Life,
    And brought Olympian wisdom down
    To court and mar, to gown and town,
    Stooping, his finger wrote in clay
    The open secret of to-day.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    What journeyings on foot and on horseback through the wilderness, to preach the gospel to these minks and muskrats! who first, no doubt, listened with their red ears out of a natural hospitality and courtesy, and afterward from curiosity or even interest, till at length there “were praying Indians,” and, as the General Court wrote to Cromwell, the “work is brought to this perfection that some of the Indians themselves can pray and prophesy in a comfortable manner.”
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
