Famous quotes containing the words almond and/or river:
“I want to go back, out of the bad stories,
But theres always the possibility that the next one . . .
No, its another almond tree, or a ring-swallowing frog . . .
Yet they are beautiful as we people them
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“There are books so alive that youre always afraid that while you werent 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 (18921941)
