Forest Creatures

Famous quotes containing the words forest and/or creatures:

    The moose will, perhaps, one day become extinct; but how naturally then, when it exists only as a fossil relic, and unseen as that, may the poet or sculptor invent a fabulous animal with similar branching and leafy horns ... to be the inhabitant of such a forest as this!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “Please your honors,” said he, “I’m able,
    By means of a secret charm, to draw
    All creatures living beneath the sun,
    That creep, or swim, or fly, or run,
    After me so as you never saw!
    And I chiefly use my charm
    On creatures that do people harm,
    The mole, and toad, and newt, and viper;
    And people call me the Pied Piper.”
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
