Famous quotes containing the word violent:

    Lift up our eyes to you?
    no, God, we stare and stare,
    upon a nearer thing
    that greets us here,
    Death, violent and near.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It was a cruel city, but it was a lovely one, a savage city, yet it had such tenderness, a bitter, harsh, and violent catacomb of stone and steel and tunneled rock, slashed savagely with light, and roaring, fighting a constant ceaseless warfare of men and of machinery; and yet it was so sweetly and so delicately pulsed, as full of warmth, of passion, and of love, as it was full of hate.
    Thomas Wolfe (1900–1938)

    I believe that truth has only one face: that of a violent contradiction.
    Georges Bataille (1897–1962)
