Famous quotes containing the words quince, tree and/or press:

    Let the palings of her bed
    Be quince and box-wood overlaid
    with the scented bark of yew.
    That all the wood in blossoming,
    May calm her heart and cool her blood
    For losing of her maidenhood.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, “Know thyself,” and too often leads to a self-estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Ah stay, my heart, the weight
    of lovers, of loneliness
    drowns me,
    alas that their very names
    so press to break my heart
    with heart-sick weariness.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
