Famous quotes containing the words retired and/or coral:

    Still grows the vivacious lilac a generation after the door and lintel and the sill are gone, unfolding its sweet-scented flowers each spring, to be plucked by the musing traveller; planted and tended once by children’s hands, in front-yard plots,—now standing by wall-sides in retired pastures, and giving place to new-rising forests;Mthe last of that stirp, sole survivor of that family.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The cities are the principal home and seat of the human group. They are the coral colony for Man, the collective being.
    Alfred Döblin (1878–1957)
