Famous quotes containing the words west and/or key:

    I cannot think that espionage can be recommended as a technique for building an impressive civilisation. It’s a lout’s game.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    At the last, tenderly,
    From the walls of the powerful fortress’d house,
    From the clasp of the knitted locks, from the keep of the well-closed doors,
    Let me be wafted.

    Let me glide noiselessly forth;
    With the key of softness unlock the locks—with a whisper,
    Set ope the doors O soul.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
