Famous quotes containing the word line:

    This wild night, gathering the washing as if it were flowers
    animal vines twisting over the line and

    in the gesticulations of shirtsleeves ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Men are not to be told anything they might find too painful; the secret depths of human nature, the sordid physicalities, might overwhelm or damage them.

    Margaret Atwood (b. 1939)

    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
