Famous quotes containing the word gathering:

    But gathering as we stray, a sense
    Of Life, so lovely and intense,
    It lingers when we wander hence,

    That those who follow feel behind
    Their backs, when all before is blind,
    Our joy, a rampart to the mind.
    John Masefield (1878–1967)

    A man is a method, a progressive arrangement; a selecting principle, gathering his like to him; wherever he goes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And from a cliff top is proclaimed
    The gathering of the souls for birth,
    The trial by existence named,
    The obscuration upon earth.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
