Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or birds:

    Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women’s issues.
    Charlotte Bunch (b. 1944)

    Religious literature has eminent examples, and if we run over our private list of poets, critics, philanthropists and philosophers, we shall find them infected with this dropsy and elephantiasis, which we ought to have tapped.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Weighing the steadfastness and state
    Of some mean things which here below reside,
    Where birds like watchful clocks the noiseless date
    And intercourse of times divide,
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
