Famous quotes containing the word dark:
“The elaborate star-light throws a reflection
On the dark stream,
Till all the eddies gleam;
And thereupon there comes that scream
From terrified, invisible beast or bird:
Image of poignant recollection.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)

Their feelings properly, complete to tags
A box for dark men and a box for Other
Would often find the contents had been scrambled.”

To the dark house and the detested wife.”
