Famous quotes containing the words fabric and/or knitted:

    Men may die, but the fabric of our free institutions remains unshaken.
    Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)

    At the last, tenderly,
    From the walls of the powerful fortress’d house,
    From the clasp of the knitted locks, from the keep of the well-closed doors,
    Let me be wafted.

    Let me glide noiselessly forth;
    With the key of softness unlock the locks—with a whisper,
    Set ope the doors O soul.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
