Famous quotes containing the words riding and/or east:
“Strong Men, riding horses. In the West
On a range five hundred files. A Thousand. Reaching
From dawn to sunset.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
“Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West,
From North and from South, come the pilgrim and guest,
When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board
The old broken links of affection restored,
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie?”
—John Greenleaf Whittier (18071892)
