Famous quotes containing the word task:
“Or seen the furrows shine but late upturned,
And where the fieldfare followed in the rear,
When all the fields around lay bound and hoar
Beneath a thick integument of snow.
So by Gods cheap economy made rich
To go upon my winters task again.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
