Famous quotes containing the words perch and/or temperate:

    Poor verdant fool, and now green ice! thy joys,
    Large and as lasting as thy perch of grass,
    Bid us lay in ‘gainst winter rain, and poise
    Their floods with an o’erflowing glass.
    Richard Lovelace (1618–1658)

    No people require maxims so much as the American. The reason is obvious: the country is so vast, the people always going somewhere, from Oregon apple valley to boreal New England, that we do not know whether to be temperate orchards or sterile climate.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)
