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

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    The holly and the ivy
    Are plants that are well known
    Of all the trees that grow in the woods
    The holly bears the crown.
    —Unknown. The Holly and the Ivy (l. 1–4)

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And I, the while, the sole unbusy thing,
    Nor honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
