Famous quotes containing the words green and/or flag:
“I live in my wooden legs and O
my green green hands.
to wish I had not run from youpollo,
blood moves still in my bark bound veins.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Justice was done, and the President of the Immortals, in Æschylean phrase, had ended his sport with Tess. And the dUrberville knights and dames slept on in their tombs unknowing. The two speechless gazers bent themselves down to the earth, as if in prayer, and remained thus a long time, absolutely motionless: the flag continued to wave silently. As soon as they had strength they arose, joined hands again, and went on.
—Thomas Hardy (18401928)
