Famous quotes containing the word lotus:

    It’s a mining town in lotus land.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    I passed a little further on and heard a lotus talk:
    Who made the world and ruleth it, He hangeth on a stalk,
    For I am in His image made, and all this tinkling tide
    Is but a sliding drop of rain between His petals wide.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
