Famous quotes containing the word clear:

    You flicker. I cannot touch you.
    I put my hands among the flames. Nothing burns.

    And it exhausts me to watch you
    Flickering like that, wrinkly and clear red, like the skin of a mouth.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)

    Until the men of action clear out the talkers we who have social consciences are at the mercy of those who have none.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Why should I seek for love or study it?
    It is of God and passes human wit;
    I study hatred with great diligence,
    For that’s a passion in my own control,
    A sort of besom that can clear the soul
    Of everything that is not mind or sense.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
