A Poem should be palpable and mute As a globed fruit.
No good water comes from a muddy spring. No sweet fruit comes from a bitter seed.josé rizal
My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is in a water'd shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit; My heart is like a rainbow shell That paddles in a halcyon sea; My heart is gladder than all these, Because my love is come to me.
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
There is nothing more pitiable than a soulless, sapless, shriveled church, seeking to thrive in a worldly atmosphere, rooted in barren professions, bearing no fruit, and maintaining only the semblance of existence; such a church cannot long survive.george c. lorimer
And all amid them stood the Tree of Life, High eminent, blooming ambrosial fruit Of vegetable gold.john milton
In plucking the fruit of memory one runs the risk of spoiling its bloom.Constantinus
Out of the fertile ground he caused to grow All trees of noblest kind for sight, smell, taste; And all amid them stood theTree of Life, High eminent, blooming ambrosial fruit Of vegetable gold; and next to life Our death theTree of Knowledge grew fast by, Knowledge of good bought dear by knowing ill.john milton
Tell me that Billy Joe Armstrong doesn’t look like a fruit.bill allred
A painting or sculpture not modelled on any real object is every bit as concrete and sensuous as a leaf or a stone.. ..(but) it is an incomplete art which privileges the intellect to the detriment of the senses... (art must be like..) fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant or a child in it’s mother’s womb. (circa 1930)hans arp
To the earth I gave the earthly tribute. Of love, hopes, good and evil; I am ready to begin another life, I am silent and wait: the time has come; I shall leave no brother in this world; And dark and cold embrace my tired soul; Like a premature fruit, deprived of sap, It withered in the storms of fate under the burning sun of existence.mikhail lermontov
The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.thomas malory
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to use it in a fruit salad.
[I]f knowing is work, exclusively work, then the one who knows, knows only the fruit of his own, subjective activity, and nothing else. There is nothing in his knowing that is not the fruit of his own efforts; there is nothing "received" in it. […]It is the mark of "absolute activity" (which Goethe said "makes one bankrupt, in the end"); the hard quality of not-being-able-to-receive; a stoniness of heart, that will not brook any resistance — as expressed once, most radically, in the following terrifying statement: "Every action makes sense, even criminal acts ... all passivity is senseless."josef pieper
Then bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch Till the white-wing'd reapers come.Henry Vaughan
World's use is cold, world's love is vain, World's cruelty is bitter bane; But pain is not the fruit of pain.
Yes, sing the song of the orange-tree, With its leaves of velvet green: With its luscious fruit of sunset hue, The fairest that ever were seen; The grape may have its bacchanal verse, To praise the fig we are free; But homage I pay to the queen of all, The glorious orange-tree.J. K. Hoyt
Beneath some orange-trees, Whose fruit and blossoms in the breeze Were wantoning together free, Like age at play with infancy.thomas moore
Sweet April! Many a thought is wedded unto thee, as hearts are wed. Nor shall they fail, till, to its autumn brought, life's golden fruit is shed.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
Can someone eat the fruit that comes from the tree of action that grows from the seeds of your mind?.
Then were the entrances of this world made narrow, full of sorrow and travail: they are but fewand evil, full of perils, and very painful. For the entrances of the elder world were wide and sure, and brought immortal fruit. If then they that live labour not to enter these strait and vain things, they can never receive those that are laid up for them.Bible (Apocrypha)
For the crown of our life as it closes Is darkness, the fruit thereof dust; No thorns go as deep as a rose's, And love is more cruel than lust. Time turns the old days to derision, Our loves into corpses or wives; And marriage and death and division Make barren our lives.algernon charles swinburne
Un enfant, monsieur, n'est-il pas l'image de deux êtres, le fruit de deux sentiments librement confondus?honoré de balzac
There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are sciences and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.Louis Pasteur
The ripest fruit first falls, and so doth he; His time is spent.william shakespeare
