Famous quotes containing the word violet:

    I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
    Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
    Quite overcanopied with luscious woodbine,
    With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine:
    There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
    Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A violet in the youth of primy nature,
    Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It were as wise to cast a violet into a crucible that you might discover the formal principle of its colour and odour, as seek to transfuse from one language into another the creations of a poet. The plant must spring again from its seed, or it will bear no flower—and this is the burthen of the curse of Babel.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
