Famous quotes containing the word trace:

    Emancipation should make it possible for woman to be human in the truest sense. Everything within her that craves assertion and activity should reach its fullest expression; all artificial barriers should be broken, and the road towards greater freedom cleared of every trace of centuries of submission and slavery.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    And in these dark cells,
    packed street after street,
    souls live, hideous yet
    O disfigured, defaced,
    with no trace of the beauty
    men once held so light.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Some wood-daemon
    has lightened your steps.
    I can find no trace of you
    in the larch-cones and the underbrush.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
