Famous quotes containing the words field, volcanic, red and/or hill:

    I see a girl dragged by the wrists
    Across a dazzling field of snow,
    And there is nothing in me that resists.
    Once it would not be so....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Each of us, even the lowliest and most insignificant among us, was uprooted from his innermost existence by the almost constant volcanic upheavals visited upon our European soil and, as one of countless human beings, I can’t claim any special place for myself except that, as an Austrian, a Jew, writer, humanist and pacifist, I have always been precisely in those places where the effects of the thrusts were most violent.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    Her fortune, too, lies there,
    Converted into cool hard steel
    And right red velvet lining;
    While over her tan impassivity
    Shot silk is shining.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    Tawny are the leaves turned, but they still hold.
    It is the harvest; what shall this land produce?
    A meager hill of kernels, a runnel of juice.
    Declension looks from our land, it is old.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
