Famous quotes containing the words bucket, women, garden, water and/or empty:

    And now, far removed from the loved habitation,
    The tear of regret will intrusively swell,

    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    My garden is run wild!
    Where shall I plant anew—
    For my bed, that once was covered with thyme,
    Is all overrun with rue?
    Mrs. Fleetwood Habergham (d. 1703)

    By constant dripping, water hollows stone,
    A signet-ring from use alone grows thin,
    And the curved plowshare by soft earth is worn.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    In the Lord’s Prayer, the first petition is for daily bread. No one can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
