Famous quotes containing the word clod:

    God of the people,
    no clod is too base for your thought,
    who made all will not cripple
    the mind with injunction.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. And also the only real tragedy in life is being used by personally minded men for purposes which you recognize to be base.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
