Famous quotes containing the word works:

    The appetite of workers works for them; their hunger urges them on.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 16:26.

    Again we mistook a little rocky islet seen through the “drisk,” with some taller bare trunks or stumps on it, for the steamer with its smoke-pipes, but as it had not changed its position after half an hour, we were undeceived. So much do the works of man resemble the works of nature. A moose might mistake a steamer for a floating isle, and not be scared till he heard its puffing or its whistle.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast
    crowned him with glory and honor.
    Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm VIII (l. VIII, 5–6)
