Famous quotes containing the word watson:

    We hold our hate too choice a thing
    For light and careless lavishing.
    —Sir William Watson (1858–1936)

    Miss Watson she took me in the closet and prayed, but nothing come of it. She told me to pray every day, and whatever I asked for I would get it. But it warn’t so. I tried it. Once I got a fish-line, but no hooks. It warn’t any good to me without hooks.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The feathers of the willow
    Are half of them grown yellow
    Above the swelling stream;
    And ragged are the bushes,
    And rusty now the rushes,
    And wild the clouded gleam.
    —Richard Watson Dixon (1833–1900)
