Sweets Corners

Famous quotes containing the words sweets and/or corners:

    In yonder Grave a Druid lies
    Where slowly winds the Stealing Wave!
    The Year’s best Sweets shall duteous rise
    To deck its Poet’s sylvan Grave!
    William Collins (1721–1759)

    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)
