Famous quotes containing the words shops and/or bucket:

    Some men love only to talk where they are masters. They like to go to school-girls, or to boys, or into the shops where the sauntering people gladly lend an ear.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And now, far removed from the loved habitation,
    The tear of regret will intrusively swell,
    As fancy reverts to my father’s plantation,
    And sighs for the bucket that hung in the well.
    Samuel Woodworth (1788–1842)
