Famous quotes containing the words blooms and/or algae:

    Is there any religion but this, to know, that, wherever in the wide desert of being, the holy sentiment we cherish has opened into a flower, it blooms for me? If none sees it, I see it; I am aware, if I alone, of the greatness of the fact. Whilst it blooms, I will keep sabbath or holy time, and suspend my gloom, and my folly and jokes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    there, where you live,
    live:
    start over,
    everyman, with
    the algae of your dreams.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
