Lax Defeated

Famous quotes containing the words lax and/or defeated:

    We want nights
    Of vague adventure, lips lax wet and warm,
    Bees in the stomach, sweat across the brow. Now.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    For us artists there waits the joyous compromise through art with all that wounded or defeated us in daily life; in this way, not to evade destiny, as the ordinary people try to do, but to fulfil it in its true potential—the imagination.
    Lawrence Durrell (1912–1990)
