Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or georgia:

    The seasons alter; hoary-headed frosts
    Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose,
    And on old Hiems’ thin and icy crown
    An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds
    Is, as in mockery, set.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find, just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
    Stuart Gorrell (d. 1963)
