Famous quotes containing the words island and/or hunters:

    I should like to have seen a gallery of coronation beauties, at Westminster Abbey, confronted for a moment by this band of Island girls; their stiffness, formality, and affectation contrasted with the artless vivacity and unconcealed natural graces of these savage maidens. It would be the Venus de’ Medici placed beside a milliner’s doll.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Runs falls rises stumbles on from darkness into darkness
    and the darkness thicketed with shapes of terror
    and the hunters pursuing and the hounds pursuing
    and the night cold and the night long and the river
    to cross and the jack-muh-lanterns beckoning beckoning
    and blackness ahead
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)
