Famous quotes containing the word eggs:
“Nothing is so beautiful as spring
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrushs eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing.”
—Gerard Manley Hopkins (18441889)
