Famous quotes containing the words lines and/or peter:
“Was seizd by the spirit that trails in the lines underfoot,
The rim, the sediment that stands for all the water and all the land
of the globe.
Fascinated, my eyes reverting from the south, dropt, to follow those slender windrows,
Chaff, straw, splinters of wood, weeds, and the sea-gluten,
Scum, scales from shining rocks, leaves of salt-lettuce, left by the tide,”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
“Most vegetarians I ever see looked enough like their food to be classed as cannibals.”
—Finley Peter Dunne (18671936)
