Famous quotes containing the word knots:

    Victory won’t come

    to me unless I go
    to it; a grape tendril
    ties a knot in knots till

    knotted thirty times,—
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    One key, one solution to the mysteries of the human condition, one solution to the old knots of fate, freedom, and foreknowledge, exists, the propounding, namely, of the double consciousness. A man must ride alternately on the horses of his private and public nature, as the equestrians in the circus throw themselves nimbly from horse to horse, or plant one foot on the back of one, and the other foot on the back of the other.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The Chief Defect of Henry King
    Was chewing little bits of String.
    At last he swallowed some which tied
    Itself in ugly Knots inside.
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)
