Famous quotes containing the word flesh:
“For man, the vast marvel is to be alive. For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive. Whatever the unborn may know, they cannot know the beauty, the marvel of being alive in the flesh. The dead may look after the afterwards. But the magnificent here and now of life in the flesh is ours, and ours alone, and ours only for a time.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)

Have faces nobody would care to see,
But water loves those gradual erasures
Of flesh and shoreline, greenery and glass,”
—Howard Moss (b. 1922)
