Mice

Famous quotes containing the word mice:

    Paradise endangered: garden snakes and mice are appearing in the shadowy corners of Dutch Old Master paintings.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is as when a migrating army of mice girdles a forest of pines. The chopper fells trees from the same motive that the mouse gnaws them,—to get his living. You tell me that he has a more interesting family than the mouse. That is as it happens.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    will your eyes lie in wait,
    little field mice nestling on their paws?
    Perhaps they will say nothing,
    perhaps they will be dark and leaden,
    having played their own game
    somewhere else....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
