Flags

Famous quotes containing the word flags:

    The flags are natures newly found.
    Rifles grow sharper on the sight.
    There is a rumble of autumnal marching,
    From which no soft sleeve relieves us.
    Fate is the present desperado.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Still, it is dear defiance now to carry
    Fair flags of you above my indignation,
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    No doubt I shall go on writing, stumbling across tundras of unmeaning, planting words like bloody flags in my wake. Loose ends, things unrelated, shifts, nightmare journeys, cities arrived at and left, meetings, desertions, betrayals, all manner of unions, adulteries, triumphs, defeats ... these are the facts.
    Alexander Trocchi (1925–1983)
