Who is william least heat moon?

Famous quotes containing the words moon and/or heat:

    Her image was my ensign: snows melted,
    Hedges sprouted, the moon tenderly shone,
    The owls trilled with tongues of nightingale.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    ... often in the heat of noonday, leaning on a hoe, looking across valleys at the mountains, so blue, so close, my only conscious thought was, “How can I ever get away from here? How can I get to where they have books, where I can be educated?” I worked hard, always waiting for something to happen to change things. There came a time when I knew I must make them happen; that no one would do anything about it for me. And I did.
    Belinda Jelliffe (1892–1979)
