Famous quotes containing the word rocky:

    These poems, people,
    lost ponies with
    Dragging saddles—
    and rocky sure-foot trails.
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)

    Who will join in the march to the Rocky Mountains with me, a sort of high-pressure-double-cylinder-go-it-ahead-forty-wildcats- tearin’ sort of a feller?... Git out of this warming-pan, ye holly-hocks, and go out to the West where you may be seen.
    —Administration in the State of Miss, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    It is what we imagine knowledge to be:
    dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free,
    drawn from the cold hard mouth
    of the world, derived from the rocky breasts
    forever, flowing and drawn, and since
    our knowledge is historical, flowing, and flown.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
