Famous quotes containing the word sweeps:

    Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river,
    That sweeps along to the mighty sea;
    James Clarence Mangan (1803–1849)

    There is a grandeur in the uniformity of the mass. When a fashion, a dance, a song, a slogan or a joke sweeps like wildfire from one end of the continent to the other, and a hundred million people roar with laughter, sway their bodies in unison, hum one song or break forth in anger and denunciation, there is the overpowering feeling that in this country we have come nearer the brotherhood of man than ever before.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    A servant with this clause
    Makes drudgery divine:
    Who sweeps a room as for Thy laws
    Makes that and th’ action fine.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)
