Famous quotes containing the word flat:
“The windy springs and the blazing summers, one after another, had enriched and mellowed that flat tableland; all the human effort that had gone into it was coming back in long, sweeping lines of fertility. The changes seemed beautiful and harmonious to me; it was like watching the growth of a great man or of a great idea. I recognized every tree and sandbank and rugged draw. I found that I remembered the conformation of the land as one remembers the modelling of human faces.”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
“Maybe Rose, there is always another story,

—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“For the Eye altering alters all;
The Senses roll themselves in fear
And the flat Earth becomes a Ball.”
—William Blake (17571827)
