Famous quotes containing the words wood and/or sir:

    Instead of calling on some scholar, I paid many a visit to particular trees, of kinds which are rare in this neighborhood, standing far away in the middle of some pasture, or in the depths of a wood or swamp, or on a hilltop.... These were the shrines I visited both summer and winter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Give me the critic bred in Nature’s school,
    Who neither talks by rote, nor thinks by rule;
    Who feeling’s honest dictates still obeys,
    And dares, without a precedent, to praise.
    Martin Archer, Sir Shee (1769–1850)
