Small Letter Turned

Famous quotes containing the words small, letter and/or turned:

    But still the delicate slips keep coaxing up water;
    The small cells bulge;

    One nub of growth
    Nudges a sand-crumb loose,
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    When you travel to the Celestial City, carry no letter of introduction. When you knock, ask to see God,—none of the servants.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I light matches and put them in my mouth,
    and my teeth melt but the greenery hisses on.
    I drink blood from my wrists
    and the green slips out like a bracelet.
    Couldn’t one of my keepers get a lawn mower
    and chop it down if I turned inside out for an hour?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
