Famous quotes containing the word spring:

    A spring of love gushed from my heart,
    And I blessed them unaware:
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    I love to weigh, to settle, to gravitate toward that which most strongly and rightfully attracts me;Mnot hang by the beam of the scale and try to weigh less,—not suppose a case, but take the case that is; to travel the only path I can, and that on which no power can resist me. It affords me no satisfaction to commence to spring an arch before I have got a solid foundation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The firelight of a long, blind, dreaming story
    Lingers upon your lips; and I have seen
    Firm, fixed forever in your closing eyes,
    The Corn King beckoning to his Spring Queen.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)
