Famous quotes containing the word works:

    Men seem anxious to accomplish an orderly retreat through the centuries, earnestly rebuilding the works behind them, as they are battered down by the encroachments of time; but while they loiter, they and their works both fall prey to the arch enemy.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, these see the works of the Lord and his wonders in the deep.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalms 107:23-24.

    Now they express
    All that’s content to wear a worn-out coat,
    All actions done in patient hopelessness,
    All that ignores the silences of death,
    Thinking no further than the hand can hold,
    All that grows old,
    Yet works on uselessly with shortened breath.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
