Famous quotes containing the word spring:

    Honour, thou first didst close
    The spring of all delight,
    Denying water to the amorous thirst;
    Torquato Tasso (1544–1595)

    The Spring I seek is in a new face only.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    When we reached the lake, about half past eight in the evening, it was still steadily raining, and harder than before; and, in that fresh, cool atmosphere, the hylodes were peeping and the toads ringing about the lake universally, as in the spring with us. It was as if the season had revolved backward two or three months, or I had arrived at the abode of perpetual spring.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
