Famous quotes containing the words kingfisher and/or paradise:

    the mud
    Flies from his hunching wings and beak—my heart,
    The blue kingfisher dives on you in fire.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    We, who have already borne on the road to Paradise the lives of the best among us, want a difficult, erect, implacable Paradise; a Paradise where one can never rest and which has, beside the threshold of the gates, angels with swords.
    J.A. (José Antonio)
