West Pennant Hills

Famous quotes containing the words west, pennant and/or hills:

    We were young, we were merry, we were very very wise,
    And the door stood open at our feast,
    When there passed us a woman with the West in her eyes,
    And a man with his back to the East.
    Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1861–1907)

    They are preparing to begin again:
    Problems, new pennant up the flagpole
    In a predicated romance.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. The fluviatile trees next the shore are the slender eyelashes which fringe it, and the wooded hills and cliffs around are its overhanging brows.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
