Famous quotes containing the words almond and/or river:

    I want to go back, out of the bad stories,
    But there’s always the possibility that the next one . . .
    No, it’s another almond tree, or a ring-swallowing frog . . .
    Yet they are beautiful as we people them
    With ourselves.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    There are books so alive that you’re always afraid that while you weren’t reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?
    Marina Tsvetaeva (1892–1941)
