Famous quotes containing the words frog, prince and/or turns:
“In almost all climes the tortoise and the frog are among the precursors and heralds of this season, and birds fly with song and glancing plumage, and plants spring and bloom, and winds blow, to correct this slight oscillation of the poles and preserve the equilibrium of nature.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The Prince but studies his companions
Like a strange tongue, wherein, to gain the language,
Tis needful that the most immodest word
Be looked upon and learnt, which once attained,
Your highness knows, comes to no further use
But to be known and hated.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“I learn to affirm
Truths light at strange turns of the minds road,
wrong turns that lead
over the border into wonder....”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
