Famous quotes containing the words ice, men, black, maine and/or bears:

    Suddenly I saw the cold and rook-delighting heaven
    That seemed as though ice burned and was but the more ice,
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    ... men and women are not yet free.... The slavery of greed endures. Little child workers, the hope of the future, are sacrificed to industry. Young men are sent out by the billion to die for profits.... We must destroy industrial slavery and build industrial democracy.... The people everywhere must come into possession of the earth [second, third, and fourth ellipses in source].
    Sara Bard Field (1882–1974)

    O God, oh! of thine only worthy blood,
    And my tears, make a heavenly Lethean flood,
    And drown in it my sins’ black memory.
    That thou remember them, some claim as debt;
    I think it mercy, if thou wilt forget.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    Midway the lake we took on board two manly-looking middle-aged men.... I talked with one of them, telling him that I had come all this distance partly to see where the white pine, the Eastern stuff of which our houses are built, grew, but that on this and a previous excursion into another part of Maine I had found it a scarce tree; and I asked him where I must look for it. With a smile, he answered that he could hardly tell me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When icicles hang by the wall,
    And Dick the shepherd blows his nail,
    And Tom bears logs into the hall,
    And milk comes frozen home in pail;
    When blood is nipped, and ways be foul,
    Then nightly sings the staring owl:
    Tu-whit, tu-whoo!—
    A merry note,
    While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
