Famous quotes containing the word louisiana:

    I saw in Louisiana a live-oak growing,
    All alone stood it and the moss hung down from the branches,
    Without any companion it grew there uttering joyous leaves of dark
    And its look, rude, unbending, lusty, made me think of myself,
    But I wonder’d how it could utter joyous leaves standing alone
    there without its friend near, for I knew I could not,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
