Famous quotes containing the word reflection:

    Fanny was not there! How she would have enjoyed the scene.... I could not but think of her, and in spite of my efforts to prevent, the unbidden tear would flow. Alas! I cannot feel the satisfaction some appear to do in the reflection that her eyes beheld the scene from the other world.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The reflection of her here, and then there,
    Is another shadow, another evasion,
    Another denial. If she is everywhere,
    She is nowhere, to him.
    But this she has made.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    In the last analysis, love is only the reflection of a man’s own worthiness from other men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
