Famous quotes containing the word hill:

    I know there are women, like my best friends, who would have gotten out of there the minute their boyfriend gave them a gun to hide, but I didn’t. I gotta admit the truth: It turned me on.
    Nicholas Pileggi, U.S. screenwriter, and Martin Scorsese. Karen Hill (Lorraine Bracco)

    “Oh, let’s go up the hill and scare ourselves,
    As reckless as the best of them tonight,
    By setting fire to all the brush we piled
    With pitchy hands to wait for rain or snow....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Who knows but this hill may one day be a Helvellyn, or even a Parnassus, and the Muses haunt here, and other Homers frequent the neighboring plains?... It was a place where gods might wander, so solemn and solitary, and removed from all contagion with the plain.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
