Famous quotes containing the words tool and/or hand:

    A broken altar, Lord, thy servant rears,
    Made of a heart, and cemented with tears:
    Whose parts are as thy hand did frame;
    No workman’s tool hath touched the same.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)

    We do not quite forgive a giver. The hand that feeds us is in some danger of being bitten. We can receive anything from love, for that is a way of receiving it from ourselves; but not from any one who assumes to bestow. We sometimes hate the meat which we eat, because there seems something of degrading dependence in living it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
