Famous quotes containing the words candles for and/or candles:

    how seasonably
    leaf and blossom uncurl
    and living things arrange their death,
    while someone from afar off
    blows birthday candles for the world.

    O heart the winds have shaken, the unappeasable host
    Is comelier than candles at Mother Mary’s feet.
