Famous quotes containing the words ward and/or wade:

    Moral qualities rule the world, but at short distances the senses are despotic.
    —Mrs. H. O. Ward (1824–1899)

    We need the tonic of wildness,—to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
