Famous quotes containing the words vines and/or david:

    The vines of her arms
    didn’t cling to the ends of his clothes,
    or did she plant herself in the doorway,
    hurl herself at his feet,
    or utter the word “Stay!”
    But as that fool began to go
    at the time when it was dark with swarming clouds,
    the slim girl blocked her lover’s way
    with only a rising river
    made with her flood of tears.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    How they got a cat up there I do not know, for they are as shy as my aunt about entering a canoe. I wondered that she did not run up a tree on the way; but perhaps she was bewildered by the very crowd of opportunities.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
