Famous quotes containing the words rains and/or heavy:

    Surely among a rich man’s flowering lawns,
    Amid the rustle of his planted hills,
    Life overflows without ambitious pains;
    And rains down life until the basin spills,
    And mounts more dizzy high the more it rains
    As though to choose whatever shape it wills....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Living alone is good for privacy, bad for full-scale cooking and moving heavy furniture.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
