Famous quotes containing the word frolic:

    In their sympathies, children feel nearer animals than adults. They frolic with animals, caress them, share with them feelings neither has words for. Have they ever stroked any adult with the love they bestow on a cat? Hugged any grownup with the ecstasy they feel when clasping a puppy?
    Jessamyn West (1907–1984)

    The frolic architecture of the snow.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The rapt One, of the godlike forehead,
    The heaven-eyed creature sleeps in earth:
    And Lamb, the frolic and the gentle,
    Has vanished from his lonely hearth.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
