Famous quotes with Bunting

  • You may depend on it that the bunting, emberiza miliaria, does not leave this country in the winter.
    Gilbert White
  • Often I think the Almighty is like a snow bunting abandoned in all weathers. Such a bird is about the weight of a postage stamp. Yet he does not blow away when he stands in the open in a tempest . . . He wields this fragile head against the gale, with his beak to the ground, wings folded close to his sides and his tail pointing upwards; and the wind can get no hold on him, and cleaves.
    Halldór Laxness
