Contained Slips Marked

Famous quotes containing the words contained, slips and/or marked:

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

    I light matches and put them in my mouth,
    and my teeth melt but the greenery hisses on.
    I drink blood from my wrists
    and the green slips out like a bracelet.
    Couldn’t one of my keepers get a lawn mower
    and chop it down if I turned inside out for an hour?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Our books of science, as they improve in accuracy, are in danger of losing the freshness and vigor and readiness to appreciate the real laws of Nature, which is a marked merit in the ofttimes false theories of the ancients.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
