Famous quotes containing the words stock, ground and/or flat:

    However low and poor the taking Snuff argues a Man to be in his own Stock of Thought, or Means to employ his Brains and his Fingers, yet there is a poorer Creature in the World than He, and this is a Borrower of Snuff; a Fellow that keeps no Box of his own, but is always asking others for a Pinch.
    Richard Steele (1672–1729)

    On every tree a bucket with a lid,
    And on black ground a bear-skin rug of snow.
    The sparks made no attempt to be the moon.
    They were content to figure in the trees
    As Leo, Orion, and the Pleiades.
    And that was what the boughs were full of soon.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Castaway, your time is a flat sea that doesn’t stop,
    with no new land to make for and no new stories to swap.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
