Famous quotes containing the word floods:

    Poor verdant fool, and now green ice! thy joys,
    Large and as lasting as thy perch of grass,
    Bid us lay in ‘gainst winter rain, and poise
    Their floods with an o’erflowing glass.
    Richard Lovelace (1618–1658)

    the cold eternal shores
    That look sheer down
    To the dark tideless floods of Nothingness
    Where all who know may drown.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    When raging love with extreme pain
    Most cruelly distrains my heart,
    When that my tears, as floods of rain,
    Bear witness of my woeful smart;
    When sighs have wasted so my breath
    That I lie at the point of death,
    Henry Howard, Earl Of Surrey (1517?–1547)
