Famous quotes containing the words wood and/or grant:

    This is the poem of the air,
    Slowly in silent syllables recorded;
    This is the secret of despair,
    Long in its cloudy bosom hoarded,
    Now whispered and revealed
    To wood and field.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    If you do know that here is one hand, we’ll grant you all the rest.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
