Famous quotes containing the word hard:

    ...here he is, fully alive, and it is hard to picture him fully dead. Death is thirty-three hours away and here we are talking about the brain size of birds and bloodhounds and hunting in the woods. You can only attend to death for so long before the life force sucks you right in again.
    Helen Prejean (b. 1940)

    My Phillis hath prime-feathered flowers
    That smile when she treads on them;
    And Phillis hath a gallant flock
    That leaps since she doth own them.
    But Phillis hath so hard a heart—
    Thomas Lodge (1558?–1625)
