Famous quotes containing the words press, quince and/or tree:

    I would have these good people to recollect, that the laws of this country hold out to foreigners an offer of all that liberty of the press which Americans enjoy, and that, if this liberty be abridged, by whatever means it may be done, the laws and the constitution, and all together, is a mere cheat; a snare to catch the credulous and enthusiastic of every other nation; a downright imposition on the world.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)

    Let the palings of her bed
    Be quince and box-wood overlaid
    with the scented bark of yew.
    That all the wood in blossoming,
    May calm her heart and cool her blood
    For losing of her maidenhood.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    The pine tree seems to listen, the fir tree seems to wait, and neither with impatience:Mthey give no thought to the little people below them whose impatience and curiosity eat them up alive.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
