Beautiful Soup, so rich and green, Waiting in a hot tureen! Who for such dainties would not stoop? Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!1865 Song of the Mock Turtle. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, ch.10.
But now my task is smoothly done, I can fly, or I can run Quickly to the green earth's end, Where the bow'd welkin slow doth bend, And from thence can soar as soon To the corners of the Moon.john milton
Father calls me William, sister calls me Will,Mother calls me Willie, but the fellers call me Bill!Mighty glad I ain't a girl—ruther be a boy,Without them sashes, curls, an' things that 's worn by Fauntleroy!Love to chawnk green apples an' go swimmin' in the lake—Hate to take the castor-ile they give for bellyache!'Most all the time, the whole year round, there ain't no flies on me,But jest 'fore Christmas I'm as good as I kin be!Eugene Field
Wondrous interlacement! Holding fast to threads by green and silky rings, With the dawn it spreads its white and purple wings; Generous in its bloom, and sheltering while it clings, Sturdy morning-glory.helen hunt jackson
A great deal of contemporary criticism readsto me like a man saying: 'Of course I do not like green cheese: I am very fond of brown sherry'.1933 All I Survey,'On Jonathan Swift'.
In essence the Renaissance was simply the green end of one of civilization's hardest winters.John Robert Fowles
Sweet Echo, sweetest nymph, that liv'st unseen Within thy airy shell By slow meander's margent green, And in the violet-embroidered vale.john milton
We will watch the sun set againmany times, and perhaps we'll see the Emerald Drop, the green flash that brings good fortune.Jean pseudonym of Ellen Gwendolen Rees Williams Rhys
Dost thou look back on what hath been, As some divinely gifted man, Whose life in low estate began And on a simple village green; Who breaks his birth's invidious bar, And grasps the skirts of happy chance, And breasts the blows of circumstance, And grapples with his evil star.Tennyson
On the green banks of Shannon, when Sheelah was nigh,No blithe Irish lad was so happy as I;No harp like my own could so cheerily play,And wherever I went was my poor dog Tray.thomas campbell
My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.ernest hemingway
"And we jolly green giants cuz we smoke so much broccoli"ludacris
In Aman's pomp poor Mardocheus wept,Yet God did turn his fate upon his foe;The Lazar pined while Dives' feast was kept,Yet he to heaven, to hell did Dives go.We trample grass and prize the flowers of May,Yet grass is green when flowers do fade away.robert southwell
I don't see myself as the Great Black Hope. I'm just a golfer who happens to be black and Asian. It doesn't matter whether they're white, black, brown or green.tiger woods
My wind is turned to bitter north, That was so soft a south before; My sky, that shone so sunny bright, With foggy gloom is clouded o’er My gay green leaves are yellow-black, Upon the dank autumnal floor; For love, departed once, comes back No more again, no more.arthur hugh clough
1927. I stood in front of your grave; in radiating sunshine there was a still, green mound. And it was preaching about mortality. My answer was: resurrection.joseph goebbels
Her green eyes fluttered swiftly twice or thrice, then glazed, her mouth gaped open, bleating, then her jaws hung loose and retched up all her soul in lumps of clotting blood.Nikos Kazantzakis
"They are too green", he said, "and only good for fools".jean de la fontaine
A good crier of green sauce.françois rabelais
Home from Guatemala, back at the Waldorf. This arrival in the wild country of the soul, All approaches gone, being completely there, Where the wild poem is a substitute For the woman one loves or ought to love, One wild rhapsody a fake for another. You touch the hotel the way you touch moonlight Or sunlight and you hum and the orchestra Hums and you say "The world in a verse, A generation sealed, men remoter than mountains, Women invisible in music and motion and color," After that alien, point-blank, green and actual Guatemala.wallace stevens
I had never worked with puppets before so just the concept of talking to this green, grungy-lookin' rag comin' out of a trash can was totally alien to me.Roscoe Orman, Sesame Street Unpaved by David Borgenicht, Hyperion, 1998, ISBN 0-7868-6460-5, p. 122.
I wrote The green Eye of the Little Yellow God in five hours, but I had it all planned out. It isn't poetry and it does not pretend to be, but it does what it sets out to do. It appeals to the imagination from the start: those colours, green and yellow, create an atmosphere.Quoted in Waugh, Alex (1967) My Brother and Other Profiles
I gazed upon the glorious sky And the green mountains round, And thought that when I came to lie At rest within the ground, 'Twere pleasant that in flowery June When brooks send up a cheerful tune, And groves a joyous sound, The sexton's hand, my grave to make, The rich, green mountain turf should break.william cullen bryant
O, saw ye the lass wi’ the bonnie blue een? Her smile is the sweetest that ever was seen, Her cheek like the rose is, but fresher, I ween, She ’s the loveliest lassie that trips on the green.O, saw ye the Lass.
Till glowworms light owl-watchmen's flight Through our green metropolis.william allingham
Where is the pride of Summer, the green prime, The many, many leaves all twinkling? three On the mossed elm; three on the naked lime Trembling, and one upon the old oak tree! Where is the Dryad's immortality?thomas hood
To strew thy green with flowers; the yellows, blues, The purple violets, and marigolds.william shakespeare
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.Psalms, XXIII. 2. (Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations)
One can see the results of those policies in hundreds of communities around my State. As one might expect, our largest communities--places like Milwaukee, Madison, and green Bay--lost thousands of jobs as a result of those trade policies, most notably NAFTA and permanent most-favored-nation status for China.russ feingold
