Famous quotes containing the word thick:

    Fruit cannot drop
    through this thick air
    fruit cannot fall into heat
    that presses up and blunts
    the points of pears
    and rounds the grapes.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    While yet it is cold January, and snow and ice are thick and solid, the prudent landlord comes from the village to get ice to cool his summer drink; impressively, even pathetically, wise, to foresee the heat and thirst of July now in January,—wearing a thick coat and mittens! when so many things are not provided for. It may be that he lays up no treasures in this world which will cool his summer drink in the next.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The trees persist, yeasty and sensuous,
    as thick as saints.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
