Famous quotes containing the words rushes and/or gold:
“Your wits cant thicken in that soft moist air, on those white springy roads, in those misty rushes and brown bogs, on those hillsides of granite rocks and magenta heather.

—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“Then leaf subsides to leaf.

—Robert Frost (18741963)
