Famous quotes containing the word ivy:

    Yet once more, O ye laurels, and once more,
    Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never-sere,
    I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude,
    And with forc’d fingers rude
    Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year.
    Bitter constraint and sad occasion dear
    Compels me to disturb your season due:
    For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    shows its berries red
    In token of the drops of blood
    Which on Calvary were shed.
    —Unknown. The Holly and the Ivy (l. 10–12)

    When the ivy has found its tower, when the delicate creeper has found its strong wall, we know how the parasite plants grow and prosper.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
