Famous quotes containing the word horn:

    He who goes oftenest round Cape Horn goes the most circumspectly.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The hounding of a dog pursuing a fox or other animal in the horizon may have first suggested the notes of the hunting-horn to alternate with and relieve the lungs of the dog. This natural bugle long resounded in the woods of the ancient world before the horn was invented.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “I wanted there should be some there next year.”
    “Of course you did. You left the rest for seed,
    And for the backwoods woodchuck. You’re the girl!
    A Ram’s Horn orchid seedpod for a woodchuck
    Sounds something like. Better than farmer’s beans
    To a discriminating appetite....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
