Famous quotes containing the word shedding:

    Persephone herself is but a voice
    or a darkness invisible enfolded in the deeper dark
    of the arms Plutonic, and pierced with the passion of dense gloom,
    among the splendor of torches of darkness, shedding darkness on the
    lost bride and her groom.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    For it is wretchedness that endures, shedding its cancerous light on all it approaches:
    Words spoken in the heat of passion, that might have been retracted in good time,
    All good intentions, all that was arguable.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Thus Winter falls,
    A heavy gloom oppressive o’er the world
    Through Nature shedding influence malign,
    And rouses up the seeds of dark disease.
    The soul of man dies in him, loathing life,
    And black with more than melancholy views.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
