Famous quotes containing the words yellow, shades and/or varieties:

    The prairies were dust. Day after day, summer after summer, the scorching winds blew the dust and the sun was brassy in a yellow sky. Crop after crop failed. Again and again the barren land must be mortgaged for taxes and food and next year’s seed. The agony of hope ended when there was not harvest and no more credit, no money to pay interest and taxes; the banker took the land. Then the bank failed.
    Rose Wilder Lane (1886–1968)

    “... So it’s plain to be discerned
    That the shades of holy men
    Who have failed, being weak of will,
    Pass the Door of Birth again,
    And are plagued by crowds, until
    They’ve passion to escape.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6.
