Famous quotes containing the words river and/or tidal:

    The mountain may be approached more easily and directly on horseback and on foot from the northeast side, by the Aroostook road, and the Wassataquoik River; but in that case you see much less of the wilderness, none of the glorious river and lake scenery, and have no experience of the batteau and the boatman’s life.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And now it is once more the tidal wave
    That when it was swept by, leaves summits stained.
    Oh, blood will out. It cannot be contained.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
