Famous quotes containing the words silk and/or white:

    Come, let me sing into your ear;
    Those dancing days are gone,
    All that silk and satin gear;
    Crouch upon a stone,
    Wrapping that foul body up
    In as foul a rag....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Come see the north wind’s masonry.
    Out of an unseen quarry evermore
    Furnished with tile, the fierce artificer
    Curves his white bastions with projected roof
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
