Thank you again Ameena for nominating me. The third and a day early, quote comes from Robert Frost “The Mending Wall”:
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
“Why do they make good neighbours? Isn’t it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That wants it down.” I could say “Elves” to him,
But it’s not elves exactly, and I’d rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, “Good fences make good neighbours.”
I don’t nominate anyone in particular, rather, if you have not done 3 Quotes/3 Days please participate because I know so many of you have done it.
This second quote is early but I was watching in Her Shoes and came across the perfect quote by e.e.cummings
Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of a sky of a tree called life; which grows
Higher then the soul can hope or mind can hide)
And this wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)
Thanks again to Ameena!
