Famous quotes containing the words art, crop, creative and/or mowing:

    Study me then, you who shall lovers be
    At the next world, that is, at the next spring:
    For I am every dead thing,
    In whom love wrought new alchemy.
    For his art did express
    A quintessence even from nothingness,
    From dull privations, and lean emptiness:
    He ruined me, and I am re-begot
    Of absence, darkness, death: things which are not.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    Her crop was a miscellany
    When all was said and done,
    A little bit of everything,
    A great deal of none.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    We must be physicists in order ... to be creative since so far codes of values and ideals have been constructed in ignorance of physics or even in contradiction to physics.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Then now is the chance for the flowers
    That can’t stand mowers and plowers.
    It must be now, though, in season
    Before the not mowing brings trees on....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
