Famous quotes containing the words joe and/or louis:

    While we were thus engaged in the twilight, we heard faintly, from far down the stream, what sounded like two strokes of a woodchopper’s axe, echoing dully through the grim solitude.... When we told Joe of this, he exclaimed, “By George, I’ll bet that was a moose! They make a noise like that.” These sounds affected us strangely, and by their very resemblance to a familiar one, where they probably had so different an origin, enhanced the impression of solitude and wildness.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    With the half of a broken hope for a pillow at night
    That somehow the right is the right
    And the smooth shall bloom from the rough:
    Lord, if that were enough?
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
