Famous quotes containing the words cloud and/or grey:

    Perhaps I stand now on the eve of a new life, shall watch the sun rise and disappear behind a black cloud extending out into a grey sky cover. I shall not be deceived by its glory. If it is to be so, there is work and the influence that work brings, but not happiness. Am I strong enough to face that?
    Beatrice Potter Webb (1858–1943)

    A great black presence beats its wings in wrath.
    Above the boneyard burn its golden eyes.
    Some small grey fur is pulsing in its grip.
    Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)
