Famous quotes containing the word shake:

    Assemble, first, all casual bits and scraps
    That may shake down into a world perhaps;
    People this world, by chance created so,
    With random persons whom you do not know—
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    I hear ... foreigners, who would boycott an employer if he hired a colored workman, complain of wrong and oppression, of low wages and long hours, clamoring for eight-hour systems ... ah, come with me, I feel like saying, I can show you workingmen’s wrong and workingmen’s toil which, could it speak, would send up a wail that might be heard from the Potomac to the Rio Grande; and should it unite and act, would shake this country from Carolina to California.
    Anna Julia Cooper (1859–1964)

    Let’s shake our heads and say,
    As ‘twere a knell unto our master’s fortunes,
    We have seen better days.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
