Gray

Famous quotes containing the word gray:

    And mimic desolation covers all.
    —Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    Love is the hardest thing in the world to write about. So simple. You’ve got to catch it through details, like the early morning sunlight hitting the gray tin of the rain spout in front of her house. The ringing of a telephone that sounds like Beethoven’s “Pastoral.” A letter scribbled on her office stationery that you carry around in your pocket because it smells of all the lilacs in Ohio.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    Far from the madding crowd’s ignoble strife,
    Their sober wishes never learn’d to stray;
    —Thomas Gray (1716–1771)
