Famous quotes containing the word bidding:

    A simple and independent mind does not toil at the bidding of any prince.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Practically speaking, the opponents to a reform in Massachusetts are not a hundred thousand politicians at the South, but a hundred thousand merchants and farmers here, who are more interested in commerce and agriculture than they are in humanity, and are not prepared to do justice to the slave and to Mexico, cost what it may. I quarrel not with far-off foes, but with those who, near at home, coƶperate with, and do the bidding of, those far away, and without whom the latter would be harmless.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Go; and if that word have not quite killed thee,
    Ease me with death by bidding me got too.
    Oh, if it have, let my word work on me,
    And a just office on a murderer do.
    Except it be too late to kill me so,
    Being double dead: going, and bidding go.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
