Famous quotes containing the word blade:

    And a wandering beauty is a blade out of its scabbard.
    You know how dangerous, gentlemen of threescore?
    May you know it yet ten more.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    Together, we three, until the world crumbles and there is no longer a stone or a rock or a tree or a blade of grass.
    Griffin Jay, and Harold Young. Mehemet Bey (Turhan Bey)

    The symbol of perpetual youth, the grass-blade, like a long green ribbon, streams from the sod into the summer, checked indeed by the frost, but anon pushing on again, lifting its spear of last year’s hay with the fresh life below. It grows as steadily as the rill oozes out of the ground.... So our human life but dies down to its root, and still puts forth its green blade to eternity.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
