Famous quotes containing the words form and/or soils:

    At any rate, let us love for a while, for a year or so, you and me. That’s a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    He bends to the order of the seasons, the weather, the soils and crops, as the sails of a ship bend to the wind. He represents continuous hard labor, year in, year out, and small gains. He is a slow person, timed to Nature, and not to city watches. He takes the pace of seasons, plants and chemistry. Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
