Famous quotes containing the words tree and/or cabbage:

    I saw the spiders marching through the air,
    Swimming from tree to tree that mildewed day
    In latter August when the hay
    Came creaking to the barn.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    The sole work and deed of universal freedom is therefore death, a death too which has no inner significance or filling, for what is negated is the empty point of the absolutely free self. It is thus the coldest and meanest of all deaths, with no more significance than cutting off a head of cabbage or swallowing a mouthful of water.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
