Famous quotes containing the word surround:

    A town is saved, not more by the righteous men in it than by the woods and swamps that surround it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Rivers of wings surround us and vast tribulation.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    It is not enough for us to prostrate ourselves under the tree which is Creation, and to contemplate its tremendous branches filled with stars. We have a duty to perform, to work upon the human soul, to defend the mystery against the miracle, to worship the incomprehensible while rejecting the absurd; to accept, in the inexplicable, only what is necessary; to dispel the superstitions that surround religion—to rid God of His Maggots.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
