Famous quotes containing the words blade and/or leaf:

    It required some rudeness to disturb with our boat the mirror-like surface of the water, in which every twig and blade of grass was so faithfully reflected; too faithfully indeed for art to imitate, for only Nature may exaggerate herself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Black creeps from root to root,
    each leaf
    cuts another leaf on the grass,
    shadow seeks shadow,
    then both leaf
    and leaf-shadow are lost.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
