Famous quotes containing the words orange and/or spotted:

    Give not this rotten orange to your friend;
    She’s but the sign and semblance of her honor.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Two feathered guests from Alabama, two together,
    And their nest, and four light-green eggs spotted with brown,
    And every day the he-bird to and fro near at hand,
    And every day the she-bird crouched on her nest, silent, with bright
    eyes,
    And every day I, a curious boy, never too close, never disturbing
    them,
    Cautiously peering, absorbing, translating.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
