Famous quotes containing the words wavelets and/or secondary:

    Broken by great waves,
    the wavelets flung it here,
    this sea-gliding creature,
    this strange creature like a weed....
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Cloud-clown, blue painter, sun as horn,
    Hill-scholar, man that never is,

    Of the secondary men. There are no rocks
    And stones, only this imager.
