Famous quotes containing the word tossing:

    Think of our little eggshell of a canoe tossing across that great lake, a mere black speck to the eagle soaring above it!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Violence upon the roads: violence of horses;
    Some few have handsome riders, are garlanded
    On delicate sensitive ear or tossing mane,
    But wearied running round and round in their courses
    All break and vanish, and evil gathers head:
    Herodias’ daughters have returned again.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    young men, tossing on their beds,
    Rhymed out in love’s despair
    To flatter beauty’s ignorant ear.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
