Famous quotes containing the words plant and/or ali:

    When they turn the sun
    on again I’ll plant children
    under it, I’ll light up my soul
    with a match and let it sing....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    That was always the difference between Muhammad Ali and the rest of us. He came, he saw, and if he didn’t entirely conquer—he came as close as anybody we are likely to see in the lifetime of this doomed generation.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
