Famous quotes containing the words mouse, grass and/or striped:

    An epicure dining at Cree
    Found a rather large mouse in his stew.
    Said the waiter, “Don’t shout,
    Or wave it about,
    Or the rest will be wanting one too.”

    But he had gone his way, the grass all mown,
    And I must be, as he had been,—alone,

    ‘As all must be,’ I said within my heart,
    ‘Whether they work together or apart.’
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    What angels invented these splendid ornaments, these rich conveniences, this ocean of air above, this ocean of water beneath, this firmament of earth between? this zodiac of lights, this tent of dropping clouds, this striped coat of climates, this fourfold year?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
