Famous quotes containing the words white and/or cross:

    the only truth is face to face, the poem whose words become your
    and dying in black and white we fight for what we love, not are
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)

    It is an agreeable change to cross a lake, after you have been shut up in the woods, not only on account of the greater expanse of water, but also of sky. It is one of the surprises which Nature has in store for the traveler in the forest. To look down, in this case, over eighteen miles of water, was liberating and civilizing even.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
