Famous quotes containing the words deep and/or throat:

    The harlot squatted
    with her hands over her red hair.
    She was not looking for customers.
    She was in a deep fear.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    No man, said Birkin, cuts another man’s throat unless he wants to cut it, and unless the other man wants it cutting. This is a complete truth. It takes two people to make a murder: a murderer and a murderee.... And a man who is murderable is a man who has in a profound if hidden lust desires to be murdered.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
