Famous quotes containing the words life and/or soil:
“When man has neither the strength to subdue his underworld powerswhich are really the ancient powers of his old, superseded self; nor the wit to placate them with sacrifice and the burnt holocaust; then they come back at him, and destroy him again. Hence every new conquest of life means a harrowing of Hell.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“Have you seen but a bright lily grow
Before rude hands have touchd it?
Have you markd but the fall of the snow
Before the soil hath smutchd it?
Have you felt the wool of the beaver,
Or swans down ever?
Or have smelt of the bud of the brier,
Or the nard in the fire?
Or have tasted the bag of the bee?
O so white, O so soft, O so sweet is she!”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
