Famous quotes containing the word stony:

    And from the first declension of the flesh
    I learnt man’s tongue, to twist the shapes of thoughts
    Into the stony idiom of the brain....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Before I finally went into winter quarters in November, I used to resort to the north- east side of Walden, which the sun, reflected from the pitch pine woods and the stony shore, made the fireside of the pond; it is so much pleasanter and wholesomer to be warmed by the sun while you can be, than by an artificial fire. I thus warmed myself by the still glowing embers which the summer, like a departed hunter, had left.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
