That headlong ivy! not a leaf will grow But thinking of a wreath, . . . I like such ivy; bold to leap a height 'Twas strong to climb! as good to grow on graves As twist about a thyrsus; pretty too (And that's not ill) when twisted round a comb. (Quote by - Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

Where round some mould'ring tow'r pale ivy creeps, And low-brow'd rocks hang nodding o'er the deeps. (Quote by - Alexander Pope)

For ivy climbs the crumbling hall To decorate decay. (Quote by - Philip James Bailey)

You couldn't just slap it into place. You had to do it right, make the ivy fit. (Quote by - Stanley Katz)

Huge knots of sea-weed hung upon the jagged and pointed stones, trembling in every breath of wind; and the green ivy clung mournfully round the dark and ruined battlements. Behind it rose the ancient castle, its towers roofless, and its massive walls crumbling away, but telling us proudly of its own might and strength, as when, seven hundred years ago, it rang with the clash of arms, or resounded with the noise of feasting and revelry. (Quote by - Charles Dickens)

Here's to holly and ivy hanging up, And to something wet in every cup (Quote by - Toast)

This old stone tower was very massive--and rather ruinous, too, for it was Roman, and four hundred years old. Yes, and handsome, after a rude fashion, and clothed with ivy from base to summit, as with a shirt of scale mail. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

Round broken columns clasping ivy twin'd. (Quote by - Alexander Pope)

So stick up ivy and the bays, and then restore the heathen ways, green will remind you of the Spring, though this great day denies the thing, and mortifies the earth, and all, but your wild revels, and loose hall. (Quote by - Henry Vaughan)
