Famous quotes containing the words island and/or hunters:

    An island always pleases my imagination, even the smallest, as a small continent and integral portion of the globe. I have a fancy for building my hut on one. Even a bare, grassy isle, which I can see entirely over at a glance, has some undefined and mysterious charm for me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Boys and bad hunters had known what to do
    With stone and lead to unprotected glass:
    Shatter it inward on the unswept floors.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
