Smells Quotes

"Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers." ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury "I wish we could see perfumes as well as smell them. I'm sure they would be very beautiful." ~ Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery The mutable, rank-scented many . . . ~ Coriolanus by William Shakespeare At a single strain of music, the scent of a flower, or even one glimpse of a path of moonlight lying fair upon a Summer sea, the barriers crumble and fall. Through the long corridors the ghosts of the past walk unforbidden, hindered only by broken promises, dead hopes, and dream-dust. ~ Old Rose and Silver by Myrtle Reed It smells like the left wing of the day of judgment. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville " . . . a very ancient and fish-like smell . . . " ~ The Tempest by William Shakespeare " . . . the rankest compound of villainous smell that ever offended nostril." ~ The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare It was a still afternoon--the golden light was lingering languidly among the upper boughs, only glancing down here and there on the purple pathway and its edge of faintly sprinkled moss: an afternoon in which destiny disguises her cold awful face behind a hazy radiant veil, encloses us in warm downy wings, and poisons us with violet-scented breath. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "Don't you love heavy fragrances, faint with sweetness, ravishing juices of odor, heliotropes, violets, water-lilies,--powerful attars and extracts that snatch your soul off your lips?" ~ The Amber Gods by Harriet Prescott Spofford The air came laden with the fragrance it caught upon its way, and the bees, upborne upon its scented breath, hummed forth their drowsy satisfaction as they floated by. ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
