Famous quotes containing the word groves:

    Hail, bounteous May, that does inspire
    Mirth and youth and warm desire!
    Woods and groves are of thy dressing,
    Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
    Thus we salute thee with our early song,
    And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    The word by seers or sibyls told,
    In groves of oak, or fanes of gold,
    Still floats upon the morning wind,
    Still whispers to the willing mind.
    One accent of the Holy Ghost
    The heedless world hath never lost.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In the groves of their academy, at the end of every vista, you see nothing but the gallows.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
