Famous quotes containing the word throw:

    The stars are putting on their glittering belts.
    They throw around their shoulders cloaks that flash
    Like a great shadow’s last embellishment.

    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    ... suffering does not ennoble. It destroys. To resist destruction, self-hatred, or lifelong hopelessness, we have to throw off the conditioning of being despised, the fear of becoming the they that is talked about so dismissively, to refuse lying myths and easy moralities, to see ourselves as human, flawed, and extraordinary. All of us—extraordinary.
    Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)
