Famous quotes by amy lowell:

    The dead fed you
    Amid the slant stones of graveyards.
    Pale ghosts who planted you
    Came in the night-time
    And let their thin hair blow through your clustered stems.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    All books are either dreams or swords,
    You can cut, or you can drug, with words.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    Moon!
    Moon!
    I am prone before you.
    Pity me,
    And drench me in loneliness.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    Time! Joyless emblem of the greed
    Of millions, robber of the best
    Which earth can give ...
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    For books are more than books, they are the life
    The very heart and core of ages past,
    The reason why men lived and worked and died,
    The essence and quintessence of their lives.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)
