Famous quotes containing the words mill and/or silk:

    Ask yourself whether you are happy, and you cease to be so.
    —John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)

    Her fortune, too, lies there,
    Converted into cool hard steel
    And right red velvet lining;
    While over her tan impassivity
    Shot silk is shining.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
