Famous quotes containing the words test and/or skin:

    First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
    By her just standard, which is still the same;
    Unerring Nature, still divinely bright,
    One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
    Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
    At once the source, and end, and test of art.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Your old skin puckering, your lungs’ breath
    Grown baby short as you looked up last
    At my face swinging over the human bed,
    And somewhere you cried, let me go let me go.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
