Famous quotes containing the words service and/or western:

    We could not help being struck by the seeming, though innocent, indifference of Nature to these men’s necessities, while elsewhere she was equally serving others. Like a true benefactress, the secret of her service is unchangeableness. Thus is the busiest merchant, though within sight of his Lowell, put to pilgrim’s shifts, and soon comes to staff and scrip and scallop-shell.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    So motionless, she seemed stone dead—just seemed:
    She was too old for death, too old for life,
    For as if jealous of all living forms
    She had lain there before bivalves began
    To catacomb their shells on western mountains.
    Edwin John Pratt (1882–1964)
