Famous quotes containing the word grey:

    Indeed, my mother’s beautiful face still shone with youthfulness that night when she so softly held my hands and sought to stop my tears; but, precisely, it seemed to me that this should not have happened, her anger would have saddened me less than this new sweetness that my childhood had never known; it seemed to me that, with a hidden and impious hand, I had just traced the first wrinkle and made appear the first grey hair in her soul.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Fretted shadow on stumps
    A vanishing husk
    Of light . . . grey lumps
    Of stone verge the hills with fears.
    It is quickly dusk.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    I cannot tell what I am as much afraid of, as a woman who invariably washes on Monday. It is a kind of key to character; and if her mouth is not puckered and her brow wrinkled, they will be, unless she repents.
    —Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)
