This is farewell. I shall wait beneath the moss Until the flowers are fragrant In this island country of Japan.
This island rock in space turns flowering endlessly To peaks of cloud still mounting where you took Your last high passage and your faltering luck.
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.john donne
Our aim is to create an island of tranquility in our own country which, amid the joyful hum of arts and crafts, would be welcome to anyone who professes faith in Ruskin and Morris.

No man is an island.
Look, stranger, on this island now The leaping light for your delight discovers, ?Stand stable here And silent be, That through the channels of the ear May wander like a river The swaying sound of the sea.wystan hugh auden
The poet who writes "free" verse is like Robinson Crusoe on his desert island: he must do all his cooking, laundry and darning for himself. In a few exceptional cases, this manly independence produces something original and impressive, but more often the result is squalor dirty sheets on the unmade bed and empty bottles on the unswept floor.wystan hugh auden
His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. And in the middle of them, with filthy body, matted hair, and unwiped nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.william golding
South America had been an island continent, far bigger and far more diverse than Australia, for tens of millions of years before the Isthmus of Panama rose just a couple of million years ago. The resulting flood of North American mammals across the new land bridge corresponds in time with the decimation of the native South American fauna. In fact, most large mammals generally considered distinctly South American... are all recent migrants from North America.stephen jay gould
By their victory, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans serving on Iwo island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.chester w. nimitz
Charlie Gibson: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you? Sarah Palin: They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.sarah palin

German Bismarck said that the solution of the Irish question lay in having the Irish to swap countries with the Dutch. He added that the Dutch would make Ireland the most beautiful island in the world while the Irish would neglect to mend the dykes left to them by the Dutch and therefore would be drowned.
When Erin first rose from the dark-swelling flood, God blessed the green island, he saw it was good. The Emerald of Europe, it sparkled and shone In the ring of this world, the most precious stone.
The empu uses a typical pedanda ketu, "crown" which is tall and red, and a ball. Another man leads Pande ceremonies on the island. He represents a curious mix of Buddhism, Hinduism, and, if it can be called this, "Pandeism." Thirty or so years ago some of the Singaraja Pande leaders felt the need for proclaiming themselves to be something other than Hindu, since they considered their fundamental beliefs to be different enough from Hinduism to warrant making a distinction.Eiseman, Jr., Fred B.
Peter Pan (originally titled Peter Pan and Wendy). Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Never land as leader of the Lost Boys.
His expedition against the Britanni was celebrated for its daring. For he was the first to launch a fleet upon the western ocean and to sail through the Atlantic sea carrying an army to wage war. The island was of incredible magnitude, and furnished much matter of dispute to multitudes of writers, some of whom averred that its name and story had been fabricated, since it never had existed and did not then exist and in his attempt to occupy it he carried the Roman supremacy beyond the confines of the inhabited world

I was born?with ready-made parents and a sister and brother who had already begun their store of experience, inaccessible to me except through their language and the record, always slightly different, of our mother and father, and as each member of the family wasborn, each,ina sensewithmemories onloan, began to supply the individual furnishings of each Was-land, each Is-land, and the hopes and dreams of the Future.Janet Paterson also known as Jean Paterson Frame Frame
Most people, it seems, think that Robinson Crusoe when he landed on his island had nothing to keep him from starvation or anything else. As a matter of fact he had twelve raft loads of supplies that he took off the wrecked ship. He had as much food and furniture as if he had had a delicatessen store and Fifth Avenue outside his hut.will cuppy
"It's a penis," Margo said, "in the same sense that Rhode island is a state: it may have an illustrious history, but it sure isn't big."john green
One of our universities recently made a survey of the reading habits of the American public; it decided that forty-eight percent of all Americans read, during a year, no book at all. I picture to myself that reader that non-reader, rather; one man out of every two and I reflect, with shame: "Our poems are too hard for him." But so, too, are Treasure island, Peter Rabbit, pornographic novels any book whatsoever.Randall Jarrell
