Famous quotes containing the words season, dancing and/or stars:

    The instincts of merry England lingered on here with exceptional vitality, and the symbolic customs which tradition has attached to each season of the year were yet a reality on Egdon. Indeed, the impulses of all such outlandish hamlets are pagan still: in these spots homage to nature, self-adoration, frantic gaieties, fragments of Teutonic rites to divinities whose names are forgotten, seem in some way or other to have survived mediaeval doctrine.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Not dancing but nearly risen
    Through barnlike, theatrelike houses
    On the winds of the buck and wing.
    James Dickey (b. 1923)

    Then, that no region of the universe
    Should remain void of life, the floor of heaven
    Was peopled with the stars and godlike forms,
    The seas became the abode of glittering fish.
    Earth took the beasts and mobile air the birds.
    A holier animal was wanting.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
