Wood Quotes

The savage bows down to IDOLS of wood and stone: the civilized man to IDOLS of flesh and blood.

George Bernard Shaw

If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Heap on the wood!-the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still.

Sir Walter Scott

Without touch we are but hunks of wood.

Jim Morrison

What is more cheerful, now, in the fall of the year, than an open-wood-fire? Do you hear those little chirps and twitters coming out of that piece of apple-wood? Those are the ghosts of the robins and blue-birds that sang upon the bough when it was in blossom last Spring. In Summer whole flocks of them come fluttering about the fruit-trees under the window: so I have singing birds all the year round.

Thomas Bailey Aldrich

By mourning tongues The death of the poet was kept from his poems. But for him it was his last afternoon as himself, An afternoon of nurses and rumours; The provinces of his body revolted, The squares of his mind were empty, Silence invaded the suburbs. The current of his feeling failed: he became his admirers. Now he is scattered over a hundred cities And wholly given over to unfamiliar affections; To find his happiness in another kind of wood And be punished under a foreign code of conscience. The words of a dead man are modified in the guts of the living.

Wystan Hugh Auden

I had rather be a pot-bellied seed cowcumber, flung carelessly on a wood pile to ripen, than tew be an old bachelor.

Henry Wheeler Shaw

Wherever wood can swim, there I am sure to find this flag of England.

Napoleon Bonaparte

What is a throne? a bit of wood gilded and covered in velvet. I am the state I alone am here the representative of the people. Even if I had done wrong you should not have reproached me in publicpeople wash their dirty linen at home. France has more need of me than I of France.
