Famous quotes containing the words men and/or summer:

    Against ill chances men are ever merry,
    But heaviness foreruns the good event.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    While yet it is cold January, and snow and ice are thick and solid, the prudent landlord comes from the village to get ice to cool his summer drink; impressively, even pathetically, wise, to foresee the heat and thirst of July now in January,—wearing a thick coat and mittens! when so many things are not provided for. It may be that he lays up no treasures in this world which will cool his summer drink in the next.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
