Famous quotes containing the word strings:

    When my lover came to bed,
    the knot came untied
    all by itself.
    My dress,
    held up by the strings of a loosened belt,
    barely stayed on my hips.
    Friend,
    that’s as much as I know now.
    When he touched my body,
    I couldn’t at all remember
    who he was,
    who I was,
    or how It was.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Love’s the only thing I’ve thought of or read about since I was knee-high. That’s what I always dreamed of, of meeting somebody and falling in love. And when that remarkable thing happened, I was going to recite poetry to her for hours about how her heart’s an angel’s wing and her hair the strings of a heavenly harp. Instead I got drunk and hollered at her and called her a harpy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    Death cut the strings that gave me life,
    And handed me to Sorrow,
    The only kind of middle wife
    My folks could beg or borrow.
    Countee Cullen (1903–1946)
