Famous quotes containing the words cross and/or red:

    How have I been able to live so long outside Nature without identifying myself with it? Everything lives, moves, everything corresponds; the magnetic rays, emanating either from myself or from others, cross the limitless chain of created things unimpeded; it is a transparent network that covers the world, and its slender threads communicate themselves by degrees to the planets and stars. Captive now upon earth, I commune with the chorus of the stars who share in my joys and sorrows.
    Gérard De Nerval (1808–1855)

    O my luve’s like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June;
    O my luve’s like the melodie That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
