Dark

Famous quotes containing the word dark:

    An American, a Negro ... two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.
    —W.E.B. (William Edward Burghardt)

    For as she eats wisdom like the halves of a pear she puts one foot in front of the other. She climbs the dark wing.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Alvina felt herself swept ... into a dusky region where men had dark faces and translucent yellow eyes, where all speech was foreign, and life was not her life. It was as if she had fallen from her own world on to another, darker star, where meanings were all changed.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
