Famous quotes containing the word anon:

    The symbol of perpetual youth, the grass-blade, like a long green ribbon, streams from the sod into the summer, checked indeed by the frost, but anon pushing on again, lifting its spear of last year’s hay with the fresh life below. It grows as steadily as the rill oozes out of the ground.... So our human life but dies down to its root, and still puts forth its green blade to eternity.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If the quick spirits in your eye
    Now languish and anon must die;
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    And thou shalt kisse the relikes everychon,
    Ye, for a grote! Unbokele anon thy purs.’
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
