Famous quotes containing the word tall:

    There is regret. Always, there is regret.
    But it is better that our lives unloose,
    As two tall ships, wind-mastered, wet with light,
    Break from an estuary with their courses set,
    And waving part, and waving drop from sight.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    It is surprising on stepping ashore anywhere into this unbroken wilderness to see so often, at least within a few rods of the river, the marks of an axe, made by lumberers who have either camped here or driven logs past in previous springs. You will see perchance where, going on the same errand that you do, they have cut large chips from a tall white pine stump for their fire.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    How tall the buildings were as I began
    To live, and how high the rain that battered them!
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
