Famous quotes containing the words parks and/or walt:

    Perhaps our own woods and fields,—in the best wooded towns, where we need not quarrel about the huckleberries,—with the primitive swamps scattered here and there in their midst, but not prevailing over them, are the perfection of parks and groves, gardens, arbors, paths, vistas, and landscapes. They are the natural consequence of what art and refinement we as a people have.... Or, I would rather say, such were our groves twenty years ago.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The only dance masters I could have were Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Walt Whitman and Nietzsche.
    Isadora Duncan (1878–1927)
