Famous quotes containing the word isle:

    She carries in the dishes,
    And lays them in a row.
    To an isle in the water
    With her would I go.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It is so rare to meet with a man outdoors who cherishes a worthy thought in his mind, which is independent of the labor of his hands. Behind every man’s busy-ness there should be a level of undisturbed serenity and industry, as within the reef encircling a coral isle there is always an expanse of still water, where the depositions are going on which will finally raise it above the surface.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
