Famous quotes containing the word branches:

    Go to the adolescent who are smothered in family—
    Oh how hideous it is
    To see three generations of one house gathered together!
    It is like an old tree with shoots,
    And with some branches rotted and falling.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Different persons growing up in the same language are like different bushes trimmed and trained to take the shape of identical elephants. The anatomical details of twigs and branches will fulfill the elephantine form differently from bush to bush, but the overall outward results are alike.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root, and it may be that he who bestows the largest amount of time and money on the needy is doing the most by his mode of life to produce that misery which he strives in vain to relieve.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
