Famous quotes containing the word defiant:

    Hidden away amongst Aschenbach’s writing was a passage directly asserting that nearly all the great things that exist owe their existence to a defiant despite: it is despite grief and anguish, despite poverty, loneliness, bodily weakness, vice and passion and a thousand inhibitions, that they have come into being at all. But this was more than an observation, it was an experience, it was positively the formula of his life and his fame, the key to his work.
    Thomas Mann (18751955)

    There is no more defiant denial of one man’s ability to possess one woman exclusively than the prostitute who refuses to redeemed.
    Gail Sheehy (b. 1937)

    How beggarly appear arguments before a defiant deed!
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
