Famous quotes containing the word sand:

    She had more sand in her than any girl I ever see: in my opinion she was just full of sand. It sounds like flattery, but it ain’t no flattery.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion.... The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    O that my vexation were weighed, and all my calamity laid in the balances! For then it would be heavier than the sand of the sea; therefore my words have been rash. For the arrows of the Almighty are in me; my spirit drinks their poison; the terrors of God are arrayed against me.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 6:2-5.
