Rivers

Famous quotes containing the word rivers:

    Like an unseasonable stormy day,
    Which makes the silver rivers drown their shores,
    As if the world were all dissolved to tears,
    So high above his limits swells the rage
    Of Bolingbroke.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, then we remembered Zion.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm CXXXVII (l. CXXXVII, 1)

    I would watch the funny people make love the way Maupassant said,
    my youth allowed me the opportunity to hear all those strange
    verbs conjugated in erotic affirmations.
    —Conrad Kent Rivers (1933–1968)
