Famous quotes containing the word fetch:

    I’m going out to fetch the little calf
    That’s standing by the mother. It’s so young,
    It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
    I sha’n’t be gone long.—You come too.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    We fetch fire and water, run about all day among the shops and markets, and get our clothes and shoes made and mended, and are the victims of these details, and once in a fortnight we arrive perhaps at a rational moment.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I have to get your room ready for you: to sweep and dust, to fetch and carry. How could that degrade me if it did not degrade you to have it done for you?
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
