Famous quotes containing the word golden:

    Love’s secrets, being mysteries, ever pertain to the transcendent and the infinite; and so they are as airy bridges, by which our further shadows pass over into the regions of the golden mists and exhalations; whence all poetical, lovely thoughts are engendered, and drop into us, as though pearls should drop from rainbows.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    All the chosen coin of fancy
    flashing out from many a golden phrase;
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    As I have known them passionate and fine,
    The gold for which they leave the golden line
    Of lyric is a golden light divine,
    Never the gold of darkness from a mine.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
