Famous quotes containing the word caves:

    Repent, repent, and from old errors turn!’
    Who listened to his voice, obeyed his cry?
    Only the echoes, which he made relent,
    Rung from their marble caves ‘Repent! Repent!’
    William Drummond, of Hawthornden (1585–1649)

    A jellyfish and a saurian,
    And caves where the cave men dwell;
    Then a sense of law and beauty,
    And a face turned from the clod—
    Some call it Evolution,
    And others call it God.
    William Herbet Carruth (1859–1929)

    But the golden-rod is one of the fairy, magical flowers; it grows not up to seek human love amid the light of day, but to mark to the discerning what wealth lies hid in the secret caves of earth.
    Margaret Fuller (1810–1850)
