Famous quotes containing the words shared and/or vision:

    Paul loved to sleep with his mother. Sleep is still most perfect, in spite of hygienists, when it is shared with a beloved.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    We might hypothetically possess ourselves of every technological resource on the North American continent, but as long as our language is inadequate, our vision remains formless, our thinking and feeling are still running in the old cycles, our process may be “revolutionary” but not transformative.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
