Creek Starts

Famous quotes containing the words creek and/or starts:

    It might be seen by what tenure men held the earth. The smallest stream is mediterranean sea, a smaller ocean creek within the land, where men may steer by their farm bounds and cottage lights. For my own part, but for the geographers, I should hardly have known how large a portion of our globe is water, my life has chiefly passed within so deep a cove. Yet I have sometimes ventured as far as to the mouth of my Snug Harbor.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For now we take the floor
    Quite unremarked-on, and I feel once more
    That silent beckoning from you verify
    All I remember weaker, but
    Something in me starts toppling.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
