Drawn

Famous quotes containing the word drawn:

    Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive,
    Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.
    The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow;
    They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
    And flare up bodily, wings and all. What then?
    Who’s sorry for a gnat ... or girl?
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    In some pictures of Provincetown the persons of the inhabitants are not drawn below the ankles, so much being supposed to be buried in the sand.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I don’t believe that the public knows what it wants; this is the conclusion that I have drawn from my career.
    Charlie Chaplin (1889–1977)
