Famous quotes containing the words hills and/or malvern:

    The scenery of mountain towns is commonly too much crowded. A town which is built on a plain of some extent, with an open horizon, and surrounded by hills at a distance, affords the best walks and views.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ye elms that wave on Malvern Hill
    In prime of morn and May,
    Recall ye how McClellan’s men
    Here stood at bay?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
