Famous quotes containing the words white and/or mountain:

    I have put a padlock
    on you, Mother, dear dead human,
    so that your great bells,
    those dear white ponies,
    can go galloping, galloping,
    wherever you are.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The mountain sheep are sweeter,
    But the valley sheep are fatter;
    We therefore deemed it meeter
    To carry off the latter.
    Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)
