Red Deer Optimist

Famous quotes containing the words red, deer and/or optimist:

    I was here first introduced to Joe.... He was a good-looking Indian, twenty-four years old, apparently of unmixed blood, short and stout, with a broad face and reddish complexion, and eyes, methinks, narrower and more turned up at the outer corners than ours, answering to the description of his race. Besides his underclothing, he wore a red flannel shirt, woolen pants, and a black Kossuth hat, the ordinary dress of the lumberman, and, to a considerable extent, of the Penobscot Indian.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There is a road that turning always
    Cuts off the country of Again.
    Archers stand there on every side
    And as it runs time’s deer is slain,
    And lies where it has lain.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)

    I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.
    Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937)
