Famous quotes containing the word web:

    Being so wrong about her makes me wonder now how often I am utterly wrong about myself. And how wrong she might have been about her mother, how wrong he might have been about his father, how much of family life is a vast web of misunderstandings, a tinted and touched-up family portrait, an accurate representation of fact that leaves out only the essential truth.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    These seem like bristles, and the hide is tough.
    No claw or web here: each foot ends in hoof.
    Thom Gunn (b. 1929)

    Our friendships hurry to short and poor conclusions, because we have made them a texture of wine and dreams, instead of the tough fibre of the human heart. The laws of friendship are austere and eternal, of one web with the laws of nature and of morals.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
