Famous quotes containing the word fields:

    The foolish fears of what might happen.
    I cast them all away
    Among the clover-scented grass,
    Among the new-mown hay,
    Among the husking of the corn,
    Where drowsy poppies nod
    Where ill thoughts die and good are born—
    Out in the fields with God.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    Most books belong to the house and street only, and in the fields their leaves feel very thin. They are bare and obvious, and have no halo nor haze about them. Nature lies far and fair behind them all. But this, as it proceeds from, so it addresses, what is deepest and most abiding in man. It belongs to the noontide of the day, the midsummer of the year, and after the snows have melted, and the waters evaporated in the spring, still its truth speaks freshly to our experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Farewell green fields and happy groves,
    Where flocks have took delight.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
