Famous quotes containing the word bend:

    Hail, Source of Being! Universal Soul
    Of heaven and earth! Essential Presence, hail!
    To thee I bend the knee; to thee my thoughts
    Continual climb, who with a master-hand
    Hast the great whole into perfection
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    He bends to the order of the seasons, the weather, the soils and crops, as the sails of a ship bend to the wind. He represents continuous hard labor, year in, year out, and small gains. He is a slow person, timed to Nature, and not to city watches. He takes the pace of seasons, plants and chemistry. Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Were you but lying cold and dead,
    And lights were paling out of the West,
    You would come hither, and bend your head,
    And I would lay my head on your breast....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
