Famous quotes containing the word lap:

    Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    He gives the impression of a strong mind which is composed and wise. His brown eye is exceedingly kindly and gentle. A child would like to sit in his lap and a dog would sidle up to him. It is difficult to associate his personality and this impression of kindness and gentle simplicity with what has occurred here in connection with these purges and shootings of the Red Army generals, and so forth.
    Joseph Davies (1876–1958)

    Far from the sun and summer-gale
    In thy green lap was Nature’s Darling laid,
    What time, where lucid Avon stray’d,
    To him the mighty mother did unveil
    Her awful face:
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)
