Famous quotes containing the word olive:

    For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield; but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat. You shall do the same with your vineyard, and with your olive orchard.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 23:10,11.

    Peace puts forth her olive everywhere.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Even when seen from near, the olive shows
    A hue of far away. Perhaps for this
    The dove brought olive back, a tree which grows
    Unearthly pale, which ever dims and dries,
    And whose great thirst, exceeding all excess,
    Teaches the South it is not paradise.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
