If Edison had a needle to find in a haystack, he would proceed at once with the diligence of the bee to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. ...

I am obnoxious to each carping tongue Who says my hand a needle better fits, A poet's pen all scorn I should thus wrong For such despite they cast on female wits; If what I do prove well, it won't advance, They'll say it's stolen, or else, it was by chance.anne bradstreet
The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.ellen g. white

As down in the sunless retreats of the oceanSweet flowers are springing no mortal can see,So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion,Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee.As still to the star of its worship, though clouded,The needle points faithfully o'er the dim sea,So dark when I roam in this wintry world shrouded,The hope of my spirit turns trembling to Thee.thomas moore
Any musician who says he is playing better either on tea, the needle, or when he is juiced, is a plain, straight liar.

Thus use your frog...Put your hook through his mouth, and out at his gills;...and then with a fine needle and silk sew the upper part of his leg, with only one stitch, to the arming-wire of your hook; or tie the frog's leg, above the upper joint, to the armed-wire; and in so doing use him as though you loved him.Izaak Walton
If our highly pointed Triangles of the Soldier class are formidable, it may be readily inferred that far more formidable are our Women.

I've seen the needle and the damage done A little part of it in everyone But every junkie's like a settin' sun.
I've seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use the man I've seen them crawl from the cradle to the gutter on their hands They fight a war but it's fatal, it's so hard to understand I've seen the man use the needle, seen the needle use the man
To some I'm a wise man, to some I'm a fool But I need a lil something to keep my cool I sleep with the sun and I rise with the moon And I feel alright with my needle and spoon.
