Famous quotes containing the word broad:

    Heavily hangs the broad sunflower
    Over its grave i’ the earth so chilly;
    Heavily hangs the hollyhock,
    Heavily hangs the tiger-lily.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    A church that can never have done with excommunicating Christ while it exists! Away with your broad and flat churches, and your narrow and tall churches! Take a step forward, and invent a new style of out-houses. Invent a salt that will save you, and defend our nostrils.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    the broad cloud-driving moon in the clear sky
    Lifts o’er the firs her shining shield,
    And in her tranquil light
    Sleep falls on forest and field.
    See! sleep hath fallen: the trees are asleep:
    The night is come. The land is wrapt in sleep.
    Robert Bridges (1844–1930)
