Leaf Curl Virus

Famous quotes containing the words leaf, curl and/or virus:

    Hast ‘ou fashioned so airy a mood
    To draw up leaf from the root?
    Hast ‘ou found a cloud so light
    As seemed neither mist nor shade?
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    You will trail across the rocks
    and wash them with your salt,
    you will curl between sand-hills
    you will thunder along the cliff
    break retreat get fresh strength
    gather and pour weight upon the beach.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life ... for fear that I should get some of his good done to me,—some of its virus mingled with my blood.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
