Famous quotes containing the word ripple:

    The forest waves, the morning breaks,
    The pastures sleep, ripple the lakes,
    Leaves twinkle, flowers like persons be
    And life pulsates in rock or tree.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The pure serene of memory in one man,—
    A ripple widening from a single stone
    Winding around the waters of the world.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)
