Famous quotes containing the word holds:

    Truth is the glue that holds our government together.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    The town is divided into various groups, which form so many little states, each with its own laws and customs, its jargon and its jokes. While the association holds and the fashion lasts, they admit nothing well said or well done except by one of themselves, and they are incapable of appeciating anything from another source, to the point of despising those who are not initiated into their mysteries.
    —Jean De La Bruy√®re (1645–1696)

    thou mayst know,
    That flesh is but the glass, which holds the dust
    That measures all our time;
    George Herbert (1593–1633)
