Desert Pattern

Famous quotes containing the words desert and/or pattern:

    Or were I in the wildest waste,
    Sae black and bare, sae black and bare,
    The desert were a Paradise,
    If thou wert there, if thou wert there.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    Every child has an inner timetable for growth—a pattern unique to him. . . . Growth is not steady, forward, upward progression. It is instead a switchback trail; three steps forward, two back, one around the bushes, and a few simply standing, before another forward leap.
    Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)
