Famous quotes containing the word rent:
“The arbitrary division of ones life into weeks and days and hours seemed, on the whole, useless. There was but one day for the men, and that was pay day, and one for the women, and that was rent day. As for the children, every day was theirs, just as it should be in every corner of the world.”
—Alice Caldwell Rice (18701942)
“I have been breaking silence these twenty-three years and have hardly made a rent in it.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Underneath the inharmonious and trivial particulars, is a musical perfection, the Ideal journeying always with us, the heaven without rent or seam.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
