Famous quotes containing the words rocks and/or wandering:

    As a great buck it powerfully appeared,
    Pushing the crumpled water up ahead,
    And landed pouring like a waterfall,
    And stumbled through the rocks with horny tread,
    And forced the underbrush—and that was all.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon;
    The world was all before them, where to choose
    Their place of rest, and Providence their guide;
    They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow
    Through Eden took their solitary way.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
