Famous quotes containing the words oak and/or black:

    Alas for America as I must so often say, the ungirt, the diffuse, the profuse, procumbent, one wide ground juniper, out of which no cedar, no oak will rear up a mast to the clouds! It all runs to leaves, to suckers, to tendrils, to miscellany. The air is loaded with poppy, with imbecility, with dispersion, & sloth.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I am black and beautiful, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon.
    Bible: Hebrew, Song of Solomon 1:5.
