Famous quotes containing the words david and/or steel:

    Thus our life is not altogether a forgetting, but also, alas! to a great extent, a remembering, of that which we should never have been conscious of, certainly not in our waking hours.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I will be steel!
    I will build a steel bridge over my need!
    I will build a bomb shelter over my heart!
    But my future is a secret.
    It is as shy as a mole.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
