Famous quotes containing the word pine:

    Generally speaking, the political news, whether domestic or foreign, might be written today for the next ten years with sufficient accuracy. Most revolutions in society have not power to interest, still less alarm us; but tell me that our rivers are drying up, or the genus pine dying out in the country, and I might attend.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It was the pine alone, chiefly the white pine, that had tempted any but the hunter to precede us on this route.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the atom’s fizz and pop we heard possibility
    uncorked. Taffeta wraps whispered on davenports.
    A new planet bloomed above us; in its light
    the stumps of cut pine gleamed like dinner plates.
    The world was beginning all over again, fresh and hot;
    we could have anything we wanted.
    Lynn Emanuel (b. 1949)
