Contained

Famous quotes containing the word contained:

    When we are in love, the sentiment is too great to be contained whole within us; it radiates out to our beloved, finds in her a surface which stops it, forces it to return to its point of departure, and it is this rebound of our own tenderness which we call the other’s affection and which charms us more than when it first went out because we do not see that it comes from us.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Nostalgia keeps dissolving the ironic narratives in which I have contained my past.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Like desire, language disrupts, refuses to be contained within boundaries.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)
