Famous quotes containing the words clubs and/or glee:

    The true reformer does not want time, nor money, nor coöperation, nor advice. What is time but the stuff delay is made of? And depend upon it, our virtue will not live on the interest of our money. He expects no income, but outgoes; so soon as we begin to count the cost, the cost begins. And as for advice, the information floating in the atmosphere of society is as evanescent and unserviceable to him as gossamer for clubs of Hercules.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Do not forget! For those green times now laugh
    In glee with sport and thought and lily dance;
    And fate in vanity now leaps to chaff
    Me smiling at her winking circumstance.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
