Giant Bernard

Famous quotes containing the words giant and/or bernard:

    The point of the dragonfly’s terrible lip, the giant water bug, birdsong, or the beautiful dazzle and flash of sunlighted minnows, is not that it all fits together like clockwork--for it doesn’t ... but that it all flows so freely wild, like the creek, that it all surges in such a free, finged tangle. Freedom is the world’s water and weather, the world’s nourishment freely given, its soil and sap: and the creator loves pizzazz.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)

    O Lord! I don’t know which is the worst of the country, the walking or the sitting at home with nothing to do.
    —George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
