Greville Married

Famous quotes containing the words greville and/or married:

    In night when colours all to black are cast,
    Distinction lost, or gone down with the light;
    The eye—a watch to inward senses placed,
    Not seeing, yet still having power of sight—
    Gives vain alarums to the inward sense
    —Fulke Greville (1554–1628)

    Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
