Famous quotes containing the words wood and/or leonard:

    It would be as wise to set up an accomplished lawyer to saw wood as a business as to condemn an educated and sensible woman to spend all her time boiling potatoes and patching old garments. Yet this is the lot of many a one who incessantly stitches and boils and bakes, compelled to thrust back out of sight the aspirations which fill her soul.
    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    The purpose of population is not ultimately peopling earth. It is to fill heaven.
    —Graham D. Leonard (b. 1921)
