Famous quotes containing the word largest:

    He was the man who of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul.... He needed not the spectacles of books to read Nature; he looked inwards, and found her there.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    The largest pond is as sensitive to atmospheric changes as the globule of mercury in its tube.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We saw many straggling white pines, commonly unsound trees, which had therefore been skipped by the choppers; these were the largest trees we saw; and we occasionally passed a small wood in which this was the prevailing tree; but I did not notice nearly so many of these trees as I can see in a single walk in Concord.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
