Famous quotes containing the word tigers:

    The ocean is a wilderness reaching round the globe, wilder than a Bengal jungle, and fuller of monsters, washing the very wharves of our cities and the gardens of our sea-side residences. Serpents, bears, hyenas, tigers rapidly vanish as civilization advances, but the most populous and civilized city cannot scare a shark far from its wharves.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Even tigers sometimes take naps.
    Chinese proverb.

    Aunt Jennifer’s tigers prance across a screen,
    Bright topaz denizens of a world of green.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
