Famous quotes containing the word needles:

    With pictures full, of wax and of wool,
    Their livers I stick with needles quick;
    There lacks but the blood to make up the flood.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    As I stand over the insect crawling amid the pine needles on the forest floor, and endeavoring to conceal itself from my sight, and ask myself why it will cherish those humble thoughts, and hide its head from me who might, perhaps, be its benefactor, and impart to its race some cheering information, I am reminded of the greater Benefactor and Intelligence that stands over me the human insect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Fly-catchers of the moon,
    Our hands are blenched, our fingers seem
    But slender needles of bone;
    Blenched by that malicious dream
    They are spread wide that each
    May rend what comes in reach.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
