Famous quotes containing the words stones, american and/or rune:

    Use the stones of another hill to polish your own jade.
    Chinese proverb.

    In the American metaphysic, reality is always material reality, hard, resistant, unformed, impenetrable, and unpleasant.
    Lionel Trilling (1905–1975)

    This is no rune nor symbol,
    what I mean is it is so simple
    yet no trick of the pen or brush
    could capture that impression;
    what I wanted to indicate was
    a new phase, a new distinction of colour.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
