Famous quotes containing the words cross and/or southern:

    Expecting me to grovel,
    she carefully covers both feet
    with the hem of her skirt.
    She pretends to hide
    a coming smile
    and won’t look straight at me.
    When I talk to her,
    she chats with her friend
    in cross tones.
    Even this slim girl’s rising anger
    delights me,
    let alone her deep love.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    My mother bore me in the southern wild,
    And I am black, but O! my soul is white;
    William Blake (1757–1827)
