Hills

Famous quotes containing the word hills:

    My travel’s history,
    Wherein of antres vast and deserts idle,
    Rough quarries, rocks, and hills whose heads touch heaven,
    It was my hint to speak—such was my process—
    And of the cannibals that each other eat,
    The anthropophagi, and men whose heads
    Do grow beneath their shoulders.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We near heaven’s hills with this,
    God’s asphodels,
    O stay,
    stay close,
    bend down.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    He told of the Magnolia, spread
    High as a cloud, high over head!
    The Cypress and her spire;
    MOf flowers that with one scarlet gleam
    Cover a hundred leagues, and seem
    To set the hills on fire.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
