Famous quotes containing the words offering and/or hair:

    I think that a young state, like a young virgin, should modestly stay at home, and wait the application of suitors for an alliance with her; and not run about offering her amity to all the world; and hazarding their refusal....

    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    Pan came out of the woods one day
    His skin and his hair and his eyes were gray....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
