Famous quotes containing the word carol:

    Prose—it might be speculated—is discourse; poetry ellipsis. Prose is spoken aloud; poetry overheard. The one is presumably articulate and social, a shared language, the voice of “communication”; the other is private, allusive, teasing, sly, idiosyncratic as the spider’s delicate web, a kind of witchcraft unfathomable to ordinary minds.
    —Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)

    Then bowed down the highest tree
    unto his mother’s hand;
    Then she cried, “See, Joseph,
    I have cherries at command.”
    —Unknown. The Cherry-Tree Carol (l. 26–28)

    In all her products, Nature only develops her simplest germs. One would say that it was no great stretch of invention to create birds. The hawk which now takes his flight over the top of the wood was at first, perchance, only a leaf which fluttered in its aisles. From rustling leaves she came in the course of ages to the loftier flight and clear carol of the bird.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
