Famous quotes containing the words linden and/or david:
“Something magical happens when parents turn into grandparents. Their attitude changes from money-doesnt-grow-on-trees to spending it like it does.”
—Paula Linden (20th century)
“Perhaps our own woods and fields,in the best wooded towns, where we need not quarrel about the huckleberries,with the primitive swamps scattered here and there in their midst, but not prevailing over them, are the perfection of parks and groves, gardens, arbors, paths, vistas, and landscapes. They are the natural consequence of what art and refinement we as a people have.... Or, I would rather say, such were our groves twenty years ago.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
