Famous quotes containing the words leaves, fragile and/or palm:

    Separation’s fire
    can be borne
    when there’s a knot of hope,
    but Mother,
    when my love leaves home
    and stays in the same village,
    it’s far worse than death.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    The course of my long life hath reached at last
    In fragile bark o’er a tempestuous sea
    The common harbor, where must rendered be
    Account for all the actions of the past.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    Being blunt with your feelings is very American. In this big country, I can be as brash as New York, as hedonistic as Los Angeles, as sensuous as San Francisco, as brainy as Boston, as proper as Philadelphia, as brawny as Chicago, as warm as Palm Springs, as friendly as my adopted home town of Dallas, Fort Worth, and as peaceful as the inland waterway that rubs up against my former home in Virginia Beach.
    Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)
