Famous quotes containing the words held and/or island:

    He held the world upon his nose
    And this-a-way he gave a fling.
    His robes and symbols, ai-hi-hi
    And that-a-way he twirled the thing.
    Sombre as fir-trees, liquid cats
    Moved in the grass without a sound.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    We approached the Indian Island through the narrow strait called “Cook.” He said, “I ‘xpect we take in some water there, river so high,—never see it so high at this season. Very rough water there, but short; swamp steamboat once. Don’t paddle till I tell you, then you paddle right along.” It was a very short rapid. When we were in the midst of it he shouted “paddle,” and we shot through without taking in a drop.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
