Famous quotes containing the word stony:

I thus warmed myself by the still glowing embers which the summer, like a departed hunter, had left.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    O God of our flesh, return us to Your wrath,

    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    In a most desolate stony place....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
