Famous quotes containing the word dark:
“The souls dark cottage, battered and decayed,
Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made:
Stronger by weakness, wiser men become
As they draw near to their eternal home.
Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view
That stand upon the threshold of the new.”
—Edmund Waller (16061687)
“So in the dark we hide the heart that bleeds,
And wait, and tend our agonizing seeds.”
—Countee Cullen (19031946)
“And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?”
—William Blake (17571827)
