City Maple Leaf

Famous quotes containing the words city, maple and/or leaf:

    It is said the city was spared a golden-oak period because its residents, lacking money to buy the popular atrocities of the nineties, necessarily clung to their rosewood and mahogany.
    —Administration in the State of Sout, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Once they came on a maple in a glade,
    Standing alone with smooth arms lifted up,
    And every leaf of foliage she’d worn
    Laid scarlet and pale pink about her feet.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    On leaf of palm, on sedge-wrought roll;
    On plastic clay and leathern scroll,
    Man wrote his thoughts; the ages passed,
    And lo! the Press was found at last!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
