Famous quotes containing the word sill:

    At the punch-bowl’s brink,
    Let the thirsty think,
    What they say in Japan:
    First the man takes a drink,
    Then the drink takes a drink,
    Then the drink takes the man!
    —Edward Rowland Sill (1841–1887)

    Still grows the vivacious lilac a generation after the door and lintel and the sill are gone, unfolding its sweet-scented flowers each spring, to be plucked by the musing traveller; planted and tended once by children’s hands, in front-yard plots,—now standing by wall-sides in retired pastures, and giving place to new-rising forests;Mthe last of that stirp, sole survivor of that family.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
