Famous quotes containing the word lily:

    The older I get the more I trust in the law according to which the rose and the lily bloom.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    It is not growing like a tree
    In bulk, doth make man better be,
    Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
    To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
    A lily of a day
    Is fairer far in May
    Although it fall and die that night;
    It was the plant and flower of light.
    In small proportions we just beauties see,
    And in short measures life may perfect be.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    I just can’t conceive of a mentality that says, “I don’t file.”
    Anonymous, U.S. secretary. As quoted in Ms. magazine, p. 46, by Lily Tomlin (January 1974)
