Famous quotes containing the word works:

    Great works constructed there in nature’s spite
    For scholars and for poets after us,
    Thoughts long knitted into a single thought,
    A dance-like glory that those walls begot.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    When life has been well spent, age is a loss of what it can well spare,—muscular strength, organic instincts, gross bulk, and works that belong to these. But the central wisdom, which was old in infancy, is young in fourscore years, and dropping off obstructions, leaves in happy subjects the mind purified and wise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast
    crowned him with glory and honor.
    Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm VIII (l. VIII, 5–6)
