Famous quotes containing the word master:

    Into the woods my Master went,
    Clean forspent, forspent.
    Into the woods my Master came,
    Forspent with love and shame,
    But the olives they were not blind to Him;
    Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)

    There is between sleep and us something like a pact, a treaty with no secret clauses, and according to this convention it is agreed that, far from being a dangerous, bewitching force, sleep will become domesticated and serve as an instrument of our power to act. We surrender to sleep, but in the way that the master entrusts himself to the slave who serves him.
    Maurice Blanchot (b. 1907)

    These temples grew as grows the grass;
    Art might obey, but not surpass.
    The passive Master lent his hand
    To the vast soul that o’er him planned.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
