Clear

Famous quotes containing the word clear:

    It is only too clear that man is not at home in this universe, and yet he is not good enough to deserve a better.
    Perry Miller (1905–1963)

    [Children] do not yet lie to themselves and therefore have not entered upon that important tacit agreement which marks admission into the adult world, to wit, that I will respect your lies if you will agree to let mine alone. That unwritten contract is one of the clear dividing lines between the world of childhood and the world of adulthood.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    The forests are held cheap after the white pine has been culled out; and the explorers and hunters pray for rain only to clear the atmosphere of smoke.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
