Quotes of Dewdrop

“ Be the green grass above me, with showers and dewdrops wet; and if thou wilt, remember, and if thou wilt, forget. ”

- Christina Rossetti

“ Manners are the happy way of doing things; each once a stroke of genius or of love — now repeated and hardened into usage. They form at last a rich varnish, with which the routine of life is washed, and its details adorned. If they are superficial, so are the dewdrops which give such depth to the morning meadows. ”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

“ I think if you look at any facet of nature in enough detail, you find it fascinating. How could you not? The universe is so full of marvels. Here's an example — rain, the shape of rain. I was minding my own business, working on my book, looking out the window, and it was raining and I was noticing that the raindrops were falling in that classic round-looking way, and I thought, 'I wonder if raindrops really are round?' So I started researching it a little, and I discovered that raindrops change shape 300 times a second. ”

- Diane Ackerman
