Famous quotes containing the word seeds:

    Agitators are a set of interfering, meddling people, who come down to some perfectly contented class of the community and sow the seeds of discontent amongst them. That is the reason why agitators are so absolutely necessary. Without them, in our incomplete state, there would be no advance towards civilisation.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    For Banquo’s issue have I filed my mind;
    For them the gracious Duncan have I murdered;
    Put rancors in the vessel of my peace
    Only for them; and mine eternal jewel
    Given to the common enemy of man,
    To make them kings, the seeds of Banquo kings!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Thus Winter falls,
    A heavy gloom oppressive o’er the world
    Through Nature shedding influence malign,
    And rouses up the seeds of dark disease.
    The soul of man dies in him, loathing life,
    And black with more than melancholy views.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
