Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or birds:

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

    All is possible,
    Who so list believe;
    Trust therefore first, and after preve,
    As men wed ladies by license and leave,
    All is possible.
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)

    One ought not to have to care
    So much as you and I
    Care when the birds come round the house
    To seem to say good-by;
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
