Famous quotes containing the word raw:

    Everybody in America is soft, and hates conflict. The cure for this, both in politics and social life, is the same—hardihood. Give them raw truth.
    John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)

    And we can get back to that raw state
    Of feeling, so long deemed
    Inconsequential and therefore appropriate to our later musings
    About religion, about migrations. What is restored
    Becomes stronger than the loss as it is remembered;
    Is a new, separate life of its own.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    —‘I wish I had feathers, a fine sweeping gown,
    And a delicate face, and could strut about Town!’—
    ‘My dear—a raw country girl, such as you be,
    Cannot quite expect that. You ain’t ruined,’ said she.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
