Famous quotes containing the word gathering:

    This was once
    a city among men, a gathering together of spirit.
    It was measured by the Lord and found wanting.
    Robert Duncan (b. 1919)

    Converse with a mind that is grandly simple, and literature looks like word-catching. The simplest utterances are worthiest to be written, yet are they so cheap, and so things of course, that, in the infinite riches of the soul, it is like gathering a few pebbles off the ground, or bottling a little air in a phial, when the whole earth and the whole atmosphere are ours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But gathering as we stray, a sense
    Of Life, so lovely and intense,
    It lingers when we wander hence,

    That those who follow feel behind
    Their backs, when all before is blind,
    Our joy, a rampart to the mind.
    John Masefield (1878–1967)
