Famous quotes containing the word lost:

    What though he did not belong to your clique! Though you may not approve of his method or his principles, recognize his magnanimity. Would you not like to claim kindredship with him in that, though in no other thing he is like, or likely, to you? Do you think that you would lose your reputation so? What you lost at the spile, you would gain at the bung.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Was I in here last night and did I spend a twenty dollar bill? What a load that is off my mind! I thought I’d lost it!
    Mahatma Kane Jeeves, U.S. screenwriter, and Eddie Cline. Egbert Sousé (W.C. Fields)

    Reason, the prized reality, the Law, is apprehended, now and then, for a serene and profound moment, amidst the hubbub of cares and works which have no direct bearing on it;Mis then lost, for months or years, and again found, for an interval, to be lost again. If we compute it in time, we may, in fifty years, have half a dozen reasonable hours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
