Famous quotes containing the words green and/or flag:
“With sudden roar and aged pine-tree falls,
One crash, the death-hymn of the perfect tree,
Declares the close of its green century.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Here, the flag snaps in the glare and silence
Of the unbroken ice. I stand here,
The dogs bark, my beard is black, and I stare
At the North Pole. . .
And now what? Why, go back.
Turn as I please, my step is to the south.”
—Randall Jarrell (19141965)
