Famous quotes containing the word strings:
“When my lover came to bed,
the knot came untied
all by itself.
held up by the strings of a loosened belt,
barely stayed on my hips.
thats as much as I know now.
When he touched my body,
I couldnt at all remember
who he was,
who I was,
or how It was.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“Loves the only thing Ive thought of or read about since I was knee-high. Thats 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 hearts an angels 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 (18931964)
“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 (19031946)
