Dark

Famous quotes containing the word dark:

    Traveller take heed for journeys undertaken in the dark of the year.
    Go in the bright blaze of Autumn’s equinox.
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    She walks in Beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that’s best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
    Thus mellowed to that tender light
    Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Why are a lady’s thighs always cool? That is, said the monk, due to three causes for which a place is always naturally cool: primo, because water runs all the way down it; secondo, because it is in a shady, dark and obscure place, where the sun never shines; and thirdly, because it is continually fanned by the winds from the breezy hole.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)
