Famous quotes containing the word estate:

    I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,
    And wish th’ estate o’ the world were now undone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Not a flock of wild geese cackles over our town, but it to some extent unsettles the value of real estate here, and, if I were a broker, I should probably take that disturbance into account.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Sweet are the thoughts that savour of content,
    The quiet mind is richer than a crown;
    Sweet are the nights in careless slumber spent,
    The poor estate scorns Fortune’s angry frown.
    Such sweet content, such minds, such sleep, such bliss,
    Beggars enjoy, when princes oft do miss.
    Robert Greene (1558?–1592)
