Famous quotes containing the words wine and/or fortified:
“when wine redeems the sight,
Narrowing the mustard scansions of the eyes,”
—Hart Crane (18991932)
“The self ... might be regarded as a sort of citadel of the mind, fortified without and containing selected treasures within, while love is an undivided share in the rest of the universe. In a healthy mind each contributes to the growth of the other: what we love intensely or for a long time we are likely to bring within the citadel, and to assert as part of ourself. On the other hand, it is only on the basis of a substantial self that a person is capable of progressive sympathy or love.”
—Charles Horton Cooley (18641929)
