Bowl Parade

Famous quotes containing the words bowl and/or parade:

    In a bowl to sea went wise men three,
    On a brilliant night of June:
    They carried a net, and their hearts were set
    On fishing up the moon.
    Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)

    Chaucer’s remarkably trustful and affectionate character appears in his familiar, yet innocent and reverent, manner of speaking of his God. He comes into his thought without any false reverence, and with no more parade than the zephyr to his ear.... There is less love and simple, practical trust in Shakespeare and Milton. How rarely in our English tongue do we find expressed any affection for God! Herbert almost alone expresses it, “Ah, my dear God!”
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
