Famous quotes containing the word clearing:

    Though the words Canada East on the map stretch over many rivers and lakes and unexplored wildernesses, the actual Canada, which might be the colored portion of the map, is but a little clearing on the banks of the river, which one of those syllables would more than cover.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    [Panurge] spent everything in a thousand little banquets and joyous feasts open to all comers, particularly jolly companions, young lasses, and delightful wenches, and in clearing his lands, burning the big logs to sell the ashes, taking money in advance, buying dear, selling cheap, and eating his wheat in the blade.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    He had a whole heaven and horizon to himself, and the sun seemed to be journeying over his clearing only the livelong day.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
